Ethereum Price Analysis: ETH Trading Near Crucial Juncture

Aayush Jindal | March 20, 2019 | 4:08 am
  • ETH price continues to face a strong resistance near the $138 and $140 levels against the US Dollar.
  • The price failed to gain strength above the $139 level and remained below the $140 pivot.
  • Yesterday’s key bearish trend line is intact with resistance near $138 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via Kraken).
  • The pair remains at a risk of a sharp decline towards the $133 support before it could bounce back.

Ethereum price is trading below important resistances against the US Dollar and bitcoin. ETH must break the $138 and $140 resistance to avoid a sharp downside reaction in the near term.

Ethereum Price Analysis

Recently, we saw a downside correction in ETH price below the $140 and $138 supports against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair tested the $135 support level and later started consolidating in a range. It recovered a few points above the $136 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. There was also a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $141 high to $135 low.  However, the price faced a strong resistance near the $138 and $139 levels.

Sellers defended the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $141 high to $135 low. More importantly, yesterday’s key bearish trend line is intact with resistance near $138 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. Therefore, there is a strong resistance formed near $138. A proper close above the trend line could push the price towards the $141 resistance area. Once there is a follow through above the $141 swing high, the price may continue to rise towards the $144 and $145 levels.

On the other hand, if buyers fail to gain strength above the trend line and $139, there could be a sharp decline. An immediate support is near the $135 level. However, in the mentioned bearish scenario, there are chances of a fresh weekly low near the $133 or $132 support. If there are more declines, the price could head towards the key $129 support area.

Ethereum Price Analysis ETH Chart

Looking at the chart, ETH price is clearly trading near a crucial juncture below $138 and $139. A continuous failure to gain bullish momentum above $138 is likely to result in a bearish reaction. Sellers are likely to take control below $135 and the price may move into a short term bearish zone. The key supports to watch are $133 and $129.
