Ethereum Price Analysis

Recently, we saw a sharp upward move above the $130 resistance in ETH price against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair climbed above the $132 and $134 resistance levels to move into a positive zone. Finally, there was a close above the $134 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The price extended gains and tested the all-important $140 resistance level, where sellers emerged. Later, there was a downside correction below the $138 level. Sellers pushed the price below the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent rise from the $132 low to $140 high.

However, the drop was protected by the $135 support level. Besides, there was no close below the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent rise from the $132 low to $140 high. The price recovered and it is currently trading nicely above the $136 level. Moreover, there is an ascending channel in place with support at $136 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair is likely to continue higher and it could retest the $140 resistance area.

A successful close above the $140 barrier may open the doors for more gains. The next stop for buyers could be near the $144-145 zone. On the other hand, the channel support at $136 might continue to hold losses. Below $136, the price is likely to test the $134 support level. The main support is near the $133 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
