Ethereum Price Going To $145
This past week, Ethereum extended its decline to test the $125 support against the US Dollar. A strong support base formed near $125, resulting in a steady rise above the $128 resistance.
Additionally, the price surpassed the 50% Fib retracement level of the key decline from the $138 high to $125 low. It opened the doors for more gains above $130 and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours).
More importantly, there was a break above a key declining channel or bullish flag with resistance near $130 on the 4-hours chart of ETH/USD. The pair is now trading nicely above the $132 and $135 resistance levels.
Besides, Ethereum climbed above the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the key decline from the $138 high to $125 low. Therefore, there are high chances of an upside continuation above the last swing high at $138.
An immediate resistance is near the $140 level. It represents the 1.236 Fib extension level of the key decline from the $138 high to $125 low.
However, the current momentum seems to be very positive, suggesting a clear follow through above the $142 resistance towards $145. Any further gains could lead the price towards the $150 and $155 resistance levels.
What Could Cause Decline in ETH?
On the other hand, if Ethereum price fails to surpass the $138 swing high, it could correct lower. The first key support is near the $132 level and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours).
If the price fails to stay above the 100 SMA, it may perhaps continue to move down towards the $128 support level in the near term. The main supports are still near $125 and $122.
The above chart indicates that Ethereum price is trading in a positive bias, with high chances of more gains towards the $142 and $145 resistance levels.
