A clear move above the $1,680 level could even pump the price to $1,720. In the stated case, the price may perhaps rise towards the $1,750 resistance zone or even $1,780.
More Losses in ETH?
If ethereum fails to rise above the $1,680 resistance, it could continue to move down. An initial support on the downside is near the $1,570 zone.
The 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $1,356 swing low to $1,785 high is also near the $1,570 level. The next major support is near $1,520, below which there is a risk of a sharp decline. In the stated case, ether price may perhaps decline towards the $1,400 support in the near term.
