Ethereum (ETH/USD) showed a slight bid early in today’s Asian session as the pair traded as high as the 145.56 area but had not yet broken out of the tight sideways range that has confined price activity over the past day.  After bids emerged around the 141.83 area during yesterday’s Asian session, there has been a lack of a market bias to the upside or downside.   Selling pressure emerged this weekend around the 148.00 figure, just below a couple of key levels that are influencing price activity.  First, the 148.12 area is an upside price objective related to the move higher from the 125.52 level that began on 2 January.  Second, the 148.05 area is acting as technical resistance because it represents the 38.2% retracement of the 199.50 – 116.25 range.
