The price of coin dropped to an intraday low of $147.85, before closing the session at $149.18, according to data from crypto tracker Coinmarketcap. This was well below the coin’s opening price of $177.18.

Ethereum Technical Analysis

Looking at the weekly charts, Ethereum price is in heavy downtrend and the price declined below $140 level. The ETHUSD pair dropped sharply and traded below the $140 and $132 support levels. The bearish pressure on the crypto market has dropped the price to trade close to $120 level. A low was formed at $121 levels and the price of Ether is currently well below the 100 hourly SMA.

Currently, the price of Ether is consolidating above the $120 support. ETHUSD recently traded above the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level of the recent slide from the $145 high to $121 lows. However, there are many resistances on the upside near the $136- $138 levels.

More importantly, yesterday’s highlighted key bearish trend line is intact with resistance at $138 on the hourly chart of ETHUSD. The trend line is close to the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level of the recent slide from the $145 highs to $121 lows. Therefore, any upside move towards the $138- $140 levels is likely to find a strong selling pressure.

To sum up, Ethereum price is trading nicely above the $120 support level. As long as the price is above $120 levels, there is a chance of an upside break towards the $140 and $150 levels in the near term. Below $120, the Ethereum price might trade drop towards $105- $100 levels.
