Ethereum Price Consolidates Losses
Ethereum’s price started a fresh decline from the $2,125 resistance zone. ETH gained bearish momentum after it broke the $2,000 support, similar to Bitcoin.
The bears even pushed the price below the $1,950 support. A low is formed near $1,910 and the price is now consolidating losses. Ether is now trading below $1,960 and the 100-hourly Simple Moving Average. Immediate resistance is near the $1,950 zone.
There is also a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near $1,950 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The 23.6% Fib retracement level of the key decline from the $2,124 swing high to the $1,910 low is also just above the trend line.
An upside break above the trend line resistance and then $1,960 might send Ethereum toward $2,000. The next major resistance is near the $2,020 zone or the 50% Fib retracement level of the key decline from the $2,124 swing high to the $1,910 low. A close above the $2,020 resistance zone could start a fresh increase.
