The triangle resistance is close to the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $2,847 swing high to $2,149 low.

Fresh Decline in ETH?
If Ethereum fails to continue higher above the $2,650 and $2,800 resistance levels, it could start another decline. An initial support on the downside is near the $2,300 level and the triangle trend line.
