Ethereum Technical Analysis

Looking at yesterday's technical chart, Ethereum price declined below $140 support level. The ETHUSD pair broke the strong support levels to start a fresh decline. Later, the price of Bitcoin declined heavily and broke the $5,000 support. It increased bearish pressure on Ethereum price and pushed it below the $140 and $145 support levels.

A new yearly low was registered at $142 mark, and later the price started to consolidate a loss. It recovered a few points above the $145, but there are many hurdles on the upside. An initial resistance is the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level of the recent decline from the $179 highs to $133 lows.

Moreover, there is a short term bearish trend line formation in place with resistance at $150 on the hourly chart of ETHUSD pair. If there is a break above the $150 and $155 levels, the price of Ethereum might correct towards $160. It represents the 50% Fibonacci retracement level.

Overall, as per the technical indicators, Ethereum's price is trading in a nasty bearish trend and it might decline below the $120 level. The next major support for Ether is placed at near $110, below which the price could accelerate more bearish pull.
