  • ETH bears engineered a recovery from the intraday lows
  • The downside momentum remains strong at this stage.  

Ethereum, the second-largest digital asset with the current market value of $14.7 billion, has recovered from the recent low of $132.48, though it is still 10% lower from this time on Sunday. At the time of writing, ETH/USD is changing hands at $135.93.  

Ethereum’s technical picture

On the daily charts, ETH/USD needs to recover above psychological $140.00 to mitigate the initial bearish pressure and get the chance for further upside towards the middle line of 1-hour Bollinger Band at $141.23 and SMA50 (Simple Moving Average) $147.26. This area roughly coincides with the lower boundary of the weekend consolidation range and creates a strong barrier that may slow down the upside moments. Once it is out of the way, the upside is likely to gain traction with the next focus on  psychological $150.00

On the downside, keep an eye the Sian low of $132.48 as it separates us from a deeper decline towards $130.00. Once below, ETH/USD will enter an uncharted territory as the coin traded below $130.00 only in March 2019.
