Fresh Decline in ETH?
If ethereum fails to rise above the $1,670 resistance, it could start another bearish wave. An initial support on the downside is near the $1,620 zone and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
The next major support is near $1,580, below which there is a risk of a sharp decline. In the stated case, ether price may perhaps decline towards the $1,550 support. Any more losses might call for a test of the $1,500 level.
