Looking at the 30-minute chart of ETH/USD, the pair even traded below the key $153.50 support and the 25 simple moving average (30-min). Sellers took control and pushed the price below the $150.00 and $148.00 levels.

A low was formed at $146.11 and later the price started a recovery. It broke the $150.00 level and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $165.86 high to $146.11 low.

However, there is a strong resistance formed near $153.00-154.00 (the previous support). Moreover, there is a major bearish trend line in place with resistance at $153.50 on the same chart. The trend line coincides with the 25 SMA, indicating the importance of the $153.00-154.00 barrier.

Above the trend line, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $165.86 high to $146.11 low is at $155.96. Therefore, a break and close above the $154.00 and $156.00 resistance levels is needed for buyers to gain control.

If the price fails to move above $154.00 and $156.00, it could resume its decline. An initial support is at $148.00, below which the price could break the $146.11 low and trade towards the $141.00 level in the near term.

Overall, Ethereum price failed to hold gains above $156.00 and declined below key supports. In the short term, ETH may consolidate, but the same supports are now likely to act as hurdles near $154.00-156.00 and protect upsides.
