After trading as low as $131, ETH price started an upside correction against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair traded above the $135 and $136 resistance levels. However, the upside move was capped by the $140 and $142 resistance levels. Moreover, there was no proper close above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $166 high to $131 low. The price clearly failed near the $141-142 resistance zone, resulting in a fresh decline.

Finally, the price broke the $137 and $136 support levels to start a fresh bearish moves. It traded below the $136 support and settled below the 100 hourly simple moving average.

More importantly, yesterday’s highlighted key breakout pattern was breached with support at $136 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. These all are bearish signs below $136 and suggests more losses in the near term.

An immediate support is at $133 and the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $131 low to $141 high.

A successful close above $141-142 followed by a break above the 100 hourly SMA is needed for more gains.
