Immediate resistance is near the $1,925 level and the triangle region. A close above the $1,925 level might start a fresh rally. In the stated case, the price could rise toward the $1,960 resistance. Any more gains could send Ether toward the $2,000 resistance. Finally, if the bulls remain in action, there could be a drift toward the $2,120 level where the bears might take a stand and protect more gains.
Fresh Decline in ETH?
If Ethereum fails to clear the $1,925 resistance, it could start another decline. Initial support on the downside is near the $1,890 level and triangle trend line.
The next major support is near the $1,880 zone or the 100-hourly Simple Moving Average. It is close to the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the recent increase from the $1,873 swing low to the $1,940 high, below which ether price might revisit the $1,840 support zone. Any more losses may perhaps take the price toward $1,800 in the near term.
