Ethereum Price Weekly Analysis
This past week, Ethereum started a nice recovery wave from the $115 swing low against the US Dollar. ETH price climbed above the $120 and $125 resistance levels to start a decent recovery.
Moreover, there was a close above the $125 level and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). It opened the doors for more gains above the $130 level. Finally, the price tested the $135 resistance, where sellers appeared.
A high was formed near $135 and the price started correcting gains. It traded below the $130 level. Besides, there was a break below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recovery wave from the $115 low to $135 high.
However, there are many decent supports on the downside near $125 and $122. Additionally, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recovery wave from the $115 low to $135 high is also near the $125 level.
If there is a downside break below the $125 and $122 support levels, Ethereum price might decline towards the $120 support level. Any further losses could restart the downtrend and spark a fresh bearish wave below $115.
On the upside, there are a few hurdles near the $132 and $135 levels. There is also a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near $132 on the 4-hours chart of ETH/USD.
Therefore, a successful close above the $132 and $135 resistance levels will most likely ignite another upward move. The next key hurdle is near the $140 level, above which the price is likely to increase towards the $150 level.
