Ethereum Price Analysis
This past week, there were mostly swing moves within a range below the $140 resistance in ETH price against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair made many attempts to clear the $140 resistance area, but it failed to gain pace. Recently, there was a sharp bearish reaction below the $134 support level. The price declined heavily and broke the $132 support along with the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). However, the price found a strong support near the $130 level and later bounced back sharply.
It climbed above the $134 support and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). It even traded above the $136 level, but sellers protected the $138 level. The price is currently ranging below the $138 and $140 resistance levels. It broke the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $130 low to $138 high. However, there are many supports near the $134 level and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours).
There is also a key bullish trend line forming with support at $132 on the 4-hours chart of ETH/USD. The 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $130 low to $138 high is also near the $134 level to act as a solid support. Therefore, there are many supports near the $134 and $132 levels.
