Price analysis of the ether
During the last sessions, ETH / USD started a slow and steady decline from the monthly peak of $ 161.35. The pair fell below $ 140.00 and $ 135.00 support levels.
ETH / BTC attempted to cancel the resistance level 0.0350BTC. However, buyers failed to get traction and subsequently started a slow and steady decline towards the 0.0320BTC support.
The 2-hour ETH / USD chart suggests that the pair made a couple of swing movements from the support area of $ 125.00-126.00. However, the price struggled to gain bullish momentum and reached peaks close to $ 140.00, $ 135.00 and $ 130.00.
More importantly, there is a bearish trend line with resistance to $ 130.00. To start a new upward move, the price must break the trend line and the resistance of $ 132.00. The next major resistance is $ 135.00, beyond which the price could enter a short-term uptrend.
On the flipside, there is an important support formed near $ 124.00 and $ 120.00. A successful closing below the $ 120.00 support could open the door for further losses to the levels of $ 115.00 and $ 110.00.
Turning to the 30-minute ETH / USD chart, there is a key bearish trend line formed with resistance at $ 132.00, and there is a rising channel with support for $ 125.00. Therefore, a break below $ 125.00 and $ 124.00 will most likely increase sales pressure.
Ether is clearly facing an uphill task near resistance levels $ 130.00 and $ 132.00. If buyers continue to struggle, there is a significant risk of a bearish break under the support of $ 120.00.
