The first major resistance is near the trend line and $1,670. A clear move above the $1,670 level could even pump the price to $1,700. If the bulls remain in action, 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 $1,670 resistance, it could continue to move down. An initial support on the downside is near the $1,570 zone.
The next major support is near $1,550, below which there is a risk of a sharp decline. In the stated case, ether price may perhaps decline towards the $1,520 support in the near term. It is near the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the key wave from the $1,355 swing low to $1,785 high. Any more losses might call for a test of the $1,450 level.
