Ethereum Price Bullish Trend

Yesterday, I mentioned that if ETH buyers remain in action, it can soon move above $130 to test $135-138 against the US Dollar. It did move higher, and not only broke $138, but also managed to surge above $145. The current trend is super bullish and pointing further gains above $150. The price may soon break and settle above $150 for a sustained upside move towards $160.

At the moment, the price is trading just below $150, and may soon break it. There is a solid ascending channel pattern with support at $143 formed on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. If the pair dips a few points from the current levels, it may find support near $144-145. The 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $120.99 low to $149.18 high is at $142.52. So, the channel support at $143 may play a major role.
