The 1-hour chart shows that there is still room for growth.
Ethereum must step above $150 and focus on $160 for a sustainable recoil to higher levels.
ETH/USD embarked on another upside move above $130 following the declines on Monday. A high was formed around $139 on Tuesday. While the bullish momentum seems to be losing steam short of $140, the 1-hour chart shows that there is still room for growth. However, traders must wait for a confirmation that is likely to be signaled by ETH/USD breaking above $140.

The first support is seen slightly below Ethereum’s current market value at $139.74 and extends to the level at $135.08. If this level caves in, then we expect ETH/USD support to reach the level highlighted by $126.31. The confluence of indicators at these levels include:

Marginally above the current price, the bulls will come face to face with the resistance at $140.85 highlighted by the Bollinger Band 4-hour upper and the 100 SMA 4-hour confluence of indicators.
