  • ETH price corrected higher recently but failed to break the $160 resistance against the US Dollar.
  • The price is currently moving lower and it might revisit the $150 or even $146 support level.
  • There is a key connecting bearish trend line formed with resistance at $155 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via Kraken).
  • The pair could recover if it surpasses the $156 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

Ethereum price is facing an increase in selling pressure versus the US Dollar and bitcoin. ETH remained capped below $160 and it is now declining towards the $150 support.

Ethereum Price Analysis

After a strong decline below $150, Ethereum price started a short term upside correction against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair gained traction above the $154 and $155 resistance levels. The pair climbed towards the $160 level, but it struggled a lot near the $158 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The price topped below the $159 level and recently started a fresh decline. It broke the $155 and $154 support levels.

There was a break below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $146 swing low to $149 swing high. Moreover, there was a break below an ascending channel with support at $155 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair tested the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $146 swing low to $149 swing high. On the downside, a break below the $152 level may open the doors for more losses below the $150 support level. The next key support is at $146, below which the price may test $142.

On the upside, there is a key connecting bearish trend line formed with resistance at $155 on the same chart. Above the trend line, the main resistance is near $156 and the 100 hourly SMA. A convincing break above the $156 resistance may push the price towards the $160 resistance level. If buyers gain control above $160, the price could stage a decent comeback above the $166 level.

Ethereum Price Analysis ETH Chart

Looking at the chart, Ethereum price is clearly facing a lot of hurdles near the $155 and $156 levels. If there is a successful close above the $156 level and the 100 hourly SMA, the bears may step back in the short term. If not, there is a risk of a sharp decline towards the $146 or $142 level.
