A bullish surge last week resulted in Ethereum overtaking XRP to become the largest altcoin by market cap. The price has since been consolidating at the 50% retracement level between the December low and the January high.

Any drops have met support at $114 which has been an important level for the price since mid-December and was the point where price made a bullish break. Just below this level is the 0.618 Fibonacci retracement level which has acted as a pocket of buyer liquidity in the cases that price dropped below $114 support.

The key resistance level above the current price to monitor is around $130 where the 0.382 Fibonacci retracement level lies. The price has previously met resistance at this point during rises.
