  • The price declined recently, but buyers protected losses below the $133 support level.

Ethereum price is setting up for the next break against the US Dollar and bitcoin. ETH/USD buyers remain in action above $133 and they could attempt to push the price above $136 and $138.

Ethereum Price Analysis

After a sharp decline, ETH price bounced back from the $130 support level against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair recovered nicely and climbed back above the $134 level. It retested the $138 resistance levels, where sellers emerged. Later, the price started a downside correction and traded below the $136 level. There was a break below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $130 swing low to $138 high. Besides, there was a break below the $135 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

However, the $133-134 support area acted as a solid buy zone and prevented further losses. Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $130 swing low to $138 high acted as a support. At the moment, the price is trading higher and it recently surpassed the $135 level and the 100 hourly SMA. On the upside, there are many hurdles near the $136, $138 and $140 resistance levels. There is also a major bearish trend line formed with resistance at $136 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD.

If there is a successful break above the trend line and $136, the price could test the $138 or $140 resistance levels. Having said that, the price must clear the $140 barrier for more gains in the near term. On the other hand, if there is a bearish reaction, the price may slide towards the $131 level.
