  • The price is trading below $3,180 and the 100-hourly Simple Moving Average.
  • There is a key rising channel forming with support at $3,140 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via Kraken).
  • The pair could continue to move down if it trades below the $3,125 support.

Ethereum Price Faces Resistance

Ethereum price struggled to recover and extended losses below the $3,100 level. ETH traded as low as $3,074 and is currently attempting another recovery wave, like Bitcoin.

There was a minor increase above the $3,125 resistance. The price climbed above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $3,292 swing high to the $3,074 low. However, the bears are active near the $3,200 resistance zone.

Ethereum is now trading below $3,180 and the 100-hourly Simple Moving Average. There is also a key rising channel forming with support at $3,140 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. Immediate resistance is near the $3,180 level and the 100-hourly Simple Moving Average.

The first major resistance is near the $3,200 level or the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $3,292 swing high to the $3,074 low.

The next key resistance sits at $3,240, above which the price might gain traction and rise toward the $3,280 level. A close above the $3,280 resistance could send the price toward the $3,350 resistance. If there is a move above the $3,350 resistance, Ethereum could even test the $3,500 resistance. Any more gains could send Ether toward the $3,550 resistance zone.

More Downsides In ETH?

If Ethereum fails to clear the $3,180 resistance, it could continue to move down. Initial support on the downside is near the $3,125 level. The first major support is near the $3,075 zone.

The main support is near the $3,030 level. A clear move below the $3,030 support might set the pace for more losses and send the price toward $2,880. Any more losses might send the price toward the $2,750 level in the near term.
