Looking at the 30-minute chart of ETH/USD, the pair started a major downside move from the $163.50 high. Sellers took control and pushed the price below the $155.00, $150.00 and $142.00 support levels.
There was even a close below the $140.00 support and the 25 simple moving average (30-min). The price traded as low as $124.50 and later started trading in a range. There was a short term correction above the $138.00 and $140.00 levels.
Buyers pushed the price above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $163.50 high to $124.41 low. However, they struggled to gain pace above the $140.00 resistance and the 25 SMA.
Besides, there was no proper test of the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $163.50 high to $124.41 low. ETH/USD traded as high as $141.65 recently and later declined below $140.00 and $138.00.
At the moment, the price is following a short term declining channel with resistance near $134.00 on the same chart. If the price breaks the channel resistance, there is a chance of an upward move towards the $140.00 and $144.00 resistance levels.
On the other hand, a downside break below the $124.50 low in Ethereum price may clear the path for more losses. The next key support is at $118.00, below which ETH could tumble and test the $100.00 support area.
