Ethereum Price Analysis

After forming a support base above $144, Ethereum started a decent upward move against the US Dollar. ETH price is rising steadily and it recently climbed above the $148 resistance area.

Moreover, there was a break above the $150 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average. However, the price ran into a crucial resistance area near $152, where the bears protected further upsides.

A high is forming near $152 and the price is currently correcting lower. An immediate support is near the $149.50 area. Besides, the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $146 swing low to $152 high is also near $149.

More importantly, there is a key bullish trend line forming with support near $148 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. Therefore, Ethereum is likely to find a strong buying interest near the $149 and $148 levels.

Additionally, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $146 swing low to $152 high is near the $148 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

If there is a downside break below the $148 support, the price could continue to move down towards the main $144 support area in the near term.

Conversely, the bulls are likely to make another attempt to surpass the $152 resistance area. In the mentioned case, there are high chances of a sharp rally above the $152 and $155 resistance levels.

The next major resistance is near the $158 level. Thus, a successful close above $158 could signal a trend change in the medium term and the price could climb towards $172.
