Ethereum Price Analysis
After struggling to stay above the $130 support, Ethereum price extended its decline against the US Dollar. ETH price broke the $128 and $126 support levels to move into a short term bearish zone.
Moreover, the price broke the $125 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. It traded to a new intraday low near $123 and it is currently correcting higher.
There was a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent slide from the $130 high to $123 low. However, the price is facing a couple of key hurdles near the $126 and $128 levels.
Besides, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent slide from the $130 high to $123 low is near the $126 level. More importantly, yesterday’s key bearish trend line is active with resistance near $127 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD.
The trend line is also close to the 100 hourly SMA near $127. Therefore, a successful close above the $126 and $128 levels is needed for a decent recovery. Additionally, the price could start a strong rise if it clears the $130 resistance area.

An initial support is near the $122 level, below which there are chances of more downsides below the $120 support area. The next major buy zone is seen near the $116 and $115 levels.
