Ethereum Price Analysis

Yesterday, there was an upside extension of the recovery initiated from $132 in Ethereum against the US Dollar. ETH price climbed above the key $150 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

Moreover, the price broke the $152 resistance and tested the next key resistance area near the $155 level. A high was formed near the $156 level and the price is currently consolidating gains.

It corrected below the $152 level. Besides, there was a push below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recovery wave from the $142 low to $156 high. At the moment, the price seems to be holding the $150 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

On the upside, there is a strong resistance forming for Ethereum near the $155 and $156 levels. Additionally, there is a key declining channel forming or a bullish flag with resistance near $154 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD.

Therefore, an upside break above the $155 and $156 resistance levels could push the price further higher. It is likely to make a sustained move higher towards the $165 resistance.

Conversely, the price could continue to correct gains below $150. An initial support is near the $148 level. It represents the 50% Fib retracement level of the recovery wave from the $142 low to $156 high.

The main support on the downside is near the $142 level. If the price closes below the $142 support, it is likely to move back into a bearish zone towards the $132 level.
