Ethereum price is approaching a crucial support area against the US Dollar, similar to bitcoin. ETH price must hold the $142 support to climb towards $160.

Ethereum Price Weekly Analysis

This past week, Ethereum started a solid recovery above the $142 resistance area against the US Dollar. Furthermore, ETH price surpassed a major resistance area near the $150 level.

More importantly, there was a break above a major bearish trend line with resistance near $152 on the 4-hours chart of ETH/USD. Besides, the pair surpassed the $155 resistance area, but it struggled to gain momentum above $158.

A swing high was formed near $158 and the price remained well below the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). Ethereum is currently correcting lower below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $131 swing low to $158 high.

The price is now approaching the broken trend line and the $145 support area. Additionally, the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $131 swing low to $158 high is near the $145 level.

The main support is near the $142 area. It is near the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $131 swing low to $158 high. Therefore, a downside break below the $142 support area could reduce chances of another upward move in the near term.

In the mentioned scenario, the price is likely to revisit the $134 and $132 support levels. On the upside, the first key resistance is near the $152 level. The key resistance area is near the $158 and $160 levels.

Thus, a clear break above the $160 level and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours) may perhaps push the price back into a positive zone.
