Ethereum Price Analysis

Recently, we saw a downside extension below the $130 support in ETH price against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair gained bearish momentum and broke the $126 and $125 support levels. It even traded below the $124 level and settled well below the 100 hourly simple moving average. A new monthly low was formed near $122 and the price is currently consolidating losses. It recovered above the $124 level and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $135 swing high to $122 swing low.

However, the previous support at $127 is acting as a solid resistance. Above $127, the $128 and $129 levels are waiting to prevent gains. There is also a crucial bearish trend line in place with resistance at $130 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. Below the trend line, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $135 swing high to $122 swing low is near $129. Finally, the 100 hourly simple moving average is positioned near the $131 level.

Therefore, there are many resistances on the upside, starting with $127 and ending near $131. If the price corrects higher, it is likely to find a strong selling interest near $127 and $128. Once the current consolidation/correction pattern is complete, the price may resume its decline below $124. The next key support is positioned near the $120 level. If sellers remain in action, the price could even test the $118 level in the near term.
