Ethereum (ETH) Recovery Won’t Be Easy, Downtrend Persists

Altcoins 2019/12/16 04:38 by Aayush Jindal
  • Ethereum is struggling to recover above the $144 and $146 resistance levels against the US Dollar.
  • The price is facing an uphill task and it could continue to move down below $140.
  • There is a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near $143 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via Kraken).
  • The price remains at a risk of another bearish wave below the key $140 support area.

Ethereum price is under a lot of pressure versus the US Dollar, similar to bitcoin below $7,000. ETH price could decline below the $140 support and continue lower.

Ethereum Price Analysis

Recently, Ethereum retested the $140 support area against the US Dollar. However, ETH bears failed to gain momentum below $140 and a swing low was formed near $140.

The price started an upside correction above the $142 resistance area, but upsides remained capped. Moreover, the price struggled to clear the $144 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

A high was formed near $144 and the price started a fresh decline. It is trading below the $142 level. Besides, Ethereum price is sliding below the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $140 low to $144 high.

An immediate support is seen near the $141 level. Additionally, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $140 low to $144 high is also near the $141 level.

The main support is still near the $139-$140 zone. If there is a downside break below the $140 support, with a proper close, then there is a risk of another bearish wave in the coming sessions.

On the upside, there are many hurdles, starting with the $142 level and the 100 hourly SMA. More importantly, there is a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near $143 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD.

Therefore, an upside break above the $142 and $144 resistance levels is must for a decent recovery. The next immediate resistance is near $146, above which the price could continue to recover towards the $152 resistance area.
