Ethereum Price Gaining Bearish Momentum

There was a close below the $128 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The price tested the $124-$125 support area and a low is formed near $124.
Ethereum is currently consolidating losses and trading above the $126 level. It broke the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $133 high to $124 low. On the upside, there are many hurdles forming near the $128 level.
