Ethereum Price Eyes More Upsides

Ethereum price retested the $2,820 support zone. ETH seems to be forming a base above $2,820 and recently started a consolidation phase, like Bitcoin. There was a recovery wave above the $2,880 and $2,920 resistance levels.

There was also a break above a key bearish trend line with resistance near $2,960 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair tested the $3,080 resistance zone. A high was formed at $3,072 and the price could aim for more upsides in the near term.

Ethereum is now trading above $3,000 and the 100-hourly Simple Moving Average. It is also above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $2,894 swing low to the $3,072 high.

If there is another recovery wave, the price might face resistance near the $3,080 level. The first major resistance is near the $3,150 level. The next major hurdle is near the $3,200 level. A close above the $3,200 level might send Ether toward the $3,320 resistance.

The next key resistance is near $3,350. An upside break above the $3,350 resistance might send the price higher toward the $3,500 resistance zone.

Another Decline In ETH?

If Ethereum fails to clear the $3,150 resistance, it could start another decline. Initial support on the downside is near $3,020. The first major support sits near the $2,960 zone and the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $2,894 swing low to the $3,072 high.

A clear move below the $2,960 support might push the price toward $2,880. Any more losses might send the price toward the $2,820 level in the near term.
