Ethereum Price Analysis: ETH Could Jump If It Closes Above 100 SMA

Aayush Jindal | March 25, 2019 | 4:08 am
  • ETH price is forming a decent support near the $134 level against the US Dollar.
  • The price is currently moving higher and testing the key $136 resistance and the 100 hourly SMA.
  • There is a major bearish trend line formed with resistance at $136 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via Kraken).
  • The pair could start a solid upward move once it settled above $136 and the 100 hourly SMA.

Ethereum price is currently approaching key hurdles against the US Dollar and bitcoin. ETH is likely to climb higher sharply once it breaks the $136 and $138 resistance levels.

Ethereum Price Analysis

Recently, there was a slow decrease in ETH price after it failed to clear the $138 resistance against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair formed a couple of lower highs and declined below the $136 support level. There was even a close below the $136 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The price traded close to the $134 support, where buyers emerged and protected further losses. Later, the price corrected higher above $135 and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $138 high to $134 low.

However, the previous support near the $136 level is now acting as a resistance. Besides, there is a major bearish trend line formed with resistance at $136 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair is also facing hurdles near the 100 hourly simple moving average, currently near $136. Finally, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $138 high to $134 low is also near $136. Therefore, the $136 level and the 100 hourly SMA are crucial hurdles.

To start a solid upward move, the price must break the $136 and $137 resistance levels. The next key resistance is at $138, above which the price is likely to move into a bullish zone. On the downside, the $134 support could play a major role. If there is a fresh decline and the price breaks $134, there might be a sharp sell-off.

Ethereum Price Analysis ETH Chart

Looking at the chart, ETH price is clearly trading near a significant resistance area at $136. Therefore, the price will either break the $136 resistance and climb higher or decline once again. A bearish break below the $134 support may perhaps push the price in a negative zone in the near term.
