Ethereum Price Analysis
After forming a base near the $122 level, Ethereum price started a fresh increase against the US Dollar. ETH price surged above the $130 resistance and the 55 simple moving average (4-hours).
Moreover, there was a break above a major bearish trend line with resistance near $129 on the 4-hours chart. The pair even climbed above the $135 resistance and tested the $138 level.
Recently, Ethereum price started a downside correction from the $138 high. It broke the $134 support area. Besides, there was a break below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $122 low to $138 high.
However, the price is finding strong bids near the $130 level and the 55 simple moving average (4-hours). Additionally, the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $122 low to $138 high is providing support.
If there is a downside break below the $130 support and the 55 SMA, Ethereum price could extend its decline. The next major support might be $125, where the bulls are likely to take a stand. It is close to the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $122 low to $138 high.
Any further losses may perhaps push the price towards the $122 support. On the upside, an initial hurdle for the bulls is near the $134 and $135 levels.
Therefore, a successful break above $135 might start another rally. The next major hurdle is near the $140 level, followed by $142. If the price continues to climb higher, it will most likely surpass the $145 resistance area.
Looking at the chart, Ethereum price is trading above key supports near the $130 and $128. As long as there is no close below the $128 level, there are chances of a fresh rally above the $134 and $135 resistance levels.
