The first major resistance is near the $1,840 level and the trend line. A close above the $1,840 resistance could send Ether toward $1,880. The next resistance sits near $1,920, above which Ethereum could rise toward $2,000. Any more gains above the $2,000 resistance zone could start a steady increase toward the $2,120 resistance.
More Losses in ETH?
If Ethereum fails to clear the $1,840 resistance, it could continue to move down. Initial support on the downside is near the $1,810 level and the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $1,792 swing low to the $1,873 high.
The next major support is near the $1,790 zone. The main support sits at $1,770. If there is a close below the $1,770 support, the price could gain bearish momentum. In the stated case, the price might drop toward the $1,720 support zone. Any more losses may perhaps spark a move toward the $1,650 support zone in the coming sessions.
