Ether Price Analysis (ETH)
Recently, we saw a sharp decline in ETH/USD below the $150.00 and $142.00 support levels. The pair traded as low as $133.12 and later started an upside correction, but it faced a strong resistance near the $140.00-142.00 zone.
ETH/BTC declined further and broke the 0.0365BTC and 0.0360BTC support levels. The pair is currently trading near 0.0357BTC, and it seems like it could continue to move down toward the 0.0352BTC support level.
Looking at the 6-hour chart of ETH/USD, there was a strong bearish reaction from the $167.41 swing high. The pair fell significantly and traded below the key $150.00 and $142.00 support levels. There was even a close below the $142.00 support, which is now acting as a resistance.
On the downside, there is a decent support formed above $130.00 and a crucial bullish trendline with support at $132.00 on the same chart. Should Ether trade below the $130.00 support, it could test the main support at $125.00.
Moving down to the 2-hour chart of ETH/USD, the pair corrected higher and faced a strong selling interest near the $142.00 resistance (the previous support). Ether’s price retreated from highs and it seems like it could revisit the $133.00 swing low.
To the topside, a successful break above the $142.00 resistance and 23.6 percent Fibonacci retracement level of the recent drop from the $167.41 high to $133.12 low is needed for a short-term rebound toward the $150.00 resistance.
To sum up, Ether is clearly struggling to bounce back above the $142.00 resistance, which could result in more losses below the $133.00, $132.00, and $130.00 levels in the coming sessions.
