Ethereum’s technical picture 

From the short-term point of view, the critical support lies in the area $137.00-$136.70. It is created by a confluence of 4-hour and 1-hour SMA levels. Meanwhile, $135.00 is critical for the coin’s near-term momentum. This handle served as a strong resistance and now might provide a good support in case of the extended downside correction
