There was also a close above the $130 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The price traded above the $140 level and formed a high at $146.95. Later, there was a downside correction below the $140 level. Sellers pushed the price below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last move from the $114 low to $146 high.

However, the decline was protected by the $130 support and the 100 hourly SMA. Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last move from the $114 low to $146 high acted as a support.

Besides, there is a short term bearish trend line formed with resistance at $138 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD.
