Ethereum Price Analysis

Recently, we saw a major drop in ETH price below the $134 support level against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair traded close to the $132 support level and later started a decent recovery. It climbed back above the $134 and $135 resistance levels. There was also a close above the $135 level and the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $140 swing high to $132 low. However, there are still many hurdled for buyers on the upside, starting with $137 and ending near $140.

The price is currently trading near the $137 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Besides, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $140 swing high to $132 low is also near the $137 level. On the upside, there is a strong resistance formed near the $138 level. There is also a crucial bearish trend line formed with resistance at $138 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD.

Below the trend line, the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $140 swing high to $132 low is positioned. Therefore, if the price continues to move higher, it could face sellers near the $137 and $138 levels. The next main resistance is near the $140 level, which prevented gains on many occasions recently. On the downside, an initial support is at $135. A break below the $135 level may push the price back towards the $132 level.
