Ethereum Price Analysis
Yesterday, we saw a decent increase in Ethereum price above the $130 resistance against the US Dollar. Moreover, ETH price rallied above the 100 hourly simple moving average and $132.
However, the $135 level once again acted as a strong resistance. A swing high was formed near $135 and the price started a downside correction. The bears succeeded in surpassing the $132 and $130 support levels.
Besides, there was a break below a contracting triangle with support near $132 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair even traded below $128 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
Finally, the price tested the main $125 and $126 support levels. A low is formed near $126 and the price is currently consolidating losses. It is trading near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $135 high to $126 low.
On the upside, the first key resistance is near the $130 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Additionally, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $135 high to $126 low is near the $130 level.
Therefore, a successful close above the $130 resistance is needed for a fresh increase. The next major resistance is near the $135 level, above which Ethereum price could rally towards the $140 and $142 levels.
On the other hand, the price could fail to recover above $128 and $130. On the downside, the $125 and $126 support levels are very important. If there is a downside break below the $125 support, the price could turn bearish and start a fresh decline.
Looking at the chart, Ethereum price is back to the key $125 support area. As long as it is above the $125 zone, there are chances of a fresh increase towards $130 and $135.
