Ethereum Price Struggles
Ethereum failed to continue higher above the $1,250 and $1,280 resistance levels. ETH formed a high near $1,281 and started a fresh decline.
There was a clear move below the $1,220 and $1,200 support levels. Ether price declined below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $1,043 swing low to $1,280 high. It is now trading below $1,200 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
Ether is also consolidating near the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $1,043 swing low to $1,280 high. An immediate resistance on the upside is near the $1,200 level.
Besides, there is a major bearish trend line forming with resistance near $1,200 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD.  The next major resistance is near the $1,250 zone. A close above the $1,250 resistance zone could start a steady increase. In the stated case, the price could clear the $1,280 resistance.

The next major resistance is near the $1,350 level, above which the price could even rise towards the $1,440 resistance level in the near term.
More Losses in ETH?
If ethereum fails to rise above the $1,200 resistance, it could continue to move down. An initial support on the downside is near the $1,150 zone.
The next major support is near the $1,120 zone. A close below the $1,120 level might put a lot of pressure on the bulls. In the stated case, ether price may perhaps decline towards the $1,050 level or even $1,000 in the coming sessions.
