It appears as if Ethereum is finding support close to the $145 mark. The next major support of the coin is between $143 and $144. Moreover, the 50 percent Fibonacci retracement level of the previous swing from the low of $139 to the high of $148 is also close to the $143.5 mark. Also, the recently highlighted bullish trendline is intact with support close to $142 on the hourly chart of the Ethereum against the US Dollar.

Hence, if the digital currency decides to head south, it could find support close to $143 and $142. Provided the digital currency remains over the $142 support level, the bulls are likely to push its price over the $148 and $150 hurdle points. Over that level, the next main target could be the crucial $158 resistance level in the short-term.

If the digital currency breaks below the $142 support level, it could start a downwards extension towards the $138 hurdle point and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
