Technically, the 2-hour chart indicators are moving lower in bearish territory.
Ether Price Analysis (ETH)
In the past few days, we saw many rejections in ETH/USD near the $140.00 resistance. Yesterday, we discussed that a continuous failure to break the $140.00 resistance is likely to put buyers on the back foot. The pair failed to gain bullish momentum and declined below the $136.00 and $134.00 support levels.
ETH/BTC also extended losses below the 0.0345BTC support level. The pair even broke the 0.0342BTC support level and is currently trading near 0.0340BTC, below which Ether could decline to 0.0332BTC in the near term.
Looking at the 2-hour chart of ETH/USD, the pair formed a few swing highs, but a continuous failure to clear the $140.00 resistance resulted in a bearish reaction. Ether’s price broke the key $135.00 and $134.00 support levels to enter a bearish zone.
The price even traded below the 50 percent Fibonacci retracement level of the upward move from $125.35 to $141.32. It tested the next important support near $132.00 and started consolidating losses.
To the topside, there is a crucial resistance formed near $135.00 and a bearish trendline with resistance at $137.00. The main resistance is still $140.00, above which the price could gain bullish momentum.
Moving down to the 30-minute chart of ETH/USD, the pair traded as low as $131.64 and is currently correcting higher. However, the previous support near $135.00 and a bearish trendline are likely to prevent gains.
Should Ether surpass the $135.00 and $137.00 levels, it could move back toward the $140.00 resistance. If not, there is a risk of a downside extension below $132.00 and $130.00 in the coming sessions.
