The price climbed above the $141.50 level and the 25 simple moving average (30-min). There was also a break above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $144.88 high to $138.26 low.

However, sellers protected more upsides near the $142.30 level and the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $144.88 high to $138.26 low. Later, there was another attempt to clear the $142.00 resistance, but buyers failed to gain traction and a swing high was formed at $142.11.

At the moment, it seems like the price is following a crucial declining channel with resistance at $142.00 on the same chart. Therefore, a convincing break above the channel resistance and follow through above the $142.11 swing high is needed for a fresh upward move.

If buyers fail to gain bullish momentum above the $142.00 resistance, there could be a nasty drop below the $140.00 and $138.20 support levels in the near term.

Overall, Ethereum price is trading near a crucial resistance at $142.00. If ETH fails to climb higher, sellers are likely to take control and the price may drop towards the $136.00 support.
