Ethereum Price Analysis

Yesterday, we saw a few swing moves near the $130 level in ETH price against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair spiked sharply below the $130 and $129 levels and later recovered above the $130 level. Later, there were consolidation moves before the price climbed above the $131 and $132 resistance levels. More importantly, there was a close above the $132 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

During the upside, this week’s important bearish trend line was breached with resistance at $131 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair broke the 50% Fib retracement level of the last slide $135 swing high to $129 swing low. It opened the doors for more gains above the $132 level. There was also a spike above the $133 level, but upsides were capped by the key $134 resistance. The price also faced sellers near the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last slide $135 swing high to $129 swing low. It is currently consolidating above the $132 support and the 100 hourly SMA.

On the upside, the price needs to clear the $134 resistance to continue higher. The next main resistance is near the last swing high at $135. Once the price clears both hurdles, it is likely to test the $140 resistance. On the other hand, if there is a downside correction, the $132 level might provide support. Any further losses might push it back towards the $130 support.
