Price analysis of the ether
In the weekly analysis of the ETH / USD, we discussed the possibilities of a bullish break above $ 132.00 and a test of $ 140.00. The pair was significantly higher in the last few sessions, gaining more than 15% and exceeding the resistance from $ 140.00 and $ 150.00.
ETH / BTC followed a similar path and gathered above the resistance 0.0320BTC. The pair also eliminated the 0.0350BTC resistance, opening the door for an upward extension to the 0.0380BTC barrier.
Looking at the 2-hour chart of Eth / USD, the pair plunged a few points after testing the $ 135.00 level. However, losses were limited and Ether found support close to $ 125.00. The price recovered well and broke the resistance of $ 150.00. A new monthly high was formed at $ 151.36 and the price is consolidating gains.
Initial support is close to the $ 148.00 level, below which the price could test a crucial uptrend line with support for $ 140.00. Turning to the 30-minute chart of Eth / USD, the pair seems to be preparing for further gains over $ 150.00 and $ 152.00 levels.
A successful hourly closing above the $ 152.00 level can set the pace for a push towards the $ 158.00-160.00 zone. The next major resistance approaches the $ 165.00 level (the previous key support in November 2018).
On the downside, the $ 144.00 level is a short-term pivot level along with the Fibonacci retracement level of 23.6 from the recent move from the low of $ 124.52 to that of $ 151.36. The current price action is super bullish compared to the $ 140.00 support, and Ether's price will most likely rise above $ 155.00 and $ 158.00 in the near term.
