ETH/USD: Technical picture

One-hour RSI points upwards, which means that the bullish potential is growing. The initial resistance is created by psychological $140.00 with the upper line of 1-hour Bollinger Band located above this area. Once it is out of the way, the upside is likely to gain traction with the next focus on the intraday high of $142.02. The next resistance awaits ETH at $142.55 ( March 25 high), while the ultimate bullish goal in the short run is $150.00. 

On the downside, SMA100 1-hour at $135.80 serves as a local support. If it is sustainably broken, the sell-off may gain traction and push the price towards $134.00. This support is created by SMA200 1-hour and the lower line of 1-hour Bollinger Band. A move below will open up the way towards $130.00
