Ethereum (ETH) Nosedives To Final Bearish Target, Can It Recover?

Avatar Aayush Jindal 2 months ago
  • Ethereum is down more than 6% and it broke the key $140 support area against the US Dollar.
  • The price tested the final bearish target near the $132 and $130 levels.
  • There is a short term contracting triangle forming with resistance near $133 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via Kraken).
  • The price could correct higher, but it is likely to face sellers near $136 or $138.

Ethereum price is diving below key supports versus the US Dollar and bitcoin. ETH price could continue to move down towards $125 if it fails to stay above $130.

Ethereum Price Analysis

In the past few analyses and the weekly forecast, we discussed the chances of Ethereum declining to the $132 support against the US Dollar. ETH price did start a nasty declining in the past few sessions and broke many supports near $140.

Moreover, there was a close below the $140 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. It opened the doors for more losses and the price tumbled below the $135 level. Finally, it spiked below the $132 support and tested the $130 area.

A new monthly low was formed near $130 and the price is currently consolidating losses. An initial resistance is near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $142 high to $130 low.

Besides, there is a short term contracting triangle forming with resistance near $133 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. Therefore, Ethereum price could either recover above $133 or extend its decline.

On the upside, the next major resistance is near the $136 level. Additionally, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $142 high to $130 low is also near the $136 level.

Having said that, the price must climb above the $138 and $140 resistance levels to move back into a positive zone. If not, there is a risk of more downsides below the $130 support area.

A clear break below the $130 level will most likely open the doors for a nasty decline towards the $125 support or the $122 area in the near term.
