Ethereum Price Weekly Analysis

At the end of the last month, Ethereum tested the $158 resistance area against the US Dollar, where it faced a lot of hurdles. A high was formed near $158 and the price started a downside correction.

It broke the $152 support and remained well below the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). Moreover, there was a break below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $132 swing low to $158 high.

However, the $144 and $145 levels are acting as strong buy zones. Besides, the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $132 swing low to $158 high is acting as a support.

At the outset, there is a key contracting triangle forming with resistance near $150 on the 4-hours chart of ETH/USD. The triangle support is near the $144 area.

Therefore, a successful break below the $144 support might start another bearish wave below the $140 level. The next major support is near the $132 swing low. Any further losses could lead Ethereum price towards the $125 zone.

On the upside, there are many resistances, starting with the triangle resistance near $150. If there is an upside break above $150 and $152, the price could revisit the $158 resistance area.

To start a fresh increase and uptrend, the price must settle above the $158 resistance and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). In the mentioned bullish case, the price is likely to rally above the $160 and $165 levels. The next major resistance is near the $172 level.
