Ethereum Price Faces Resistance
Ethereum’s price managed to stay above the $1,800 support zone. ETH formed a base and recently started an upside correction above $1,850, similar to Bitcoin at $28,000.
The price was able to climb above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the key drop from the $1,940 swing high to the $1,805 low. However, the price struggled to surpass the $1,880 resistance zone and failed to stay above the 100-hourly Simple Moving Average.

There is also a major bearish trend line forming with resistance near $1,870 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The next major resistance seems to be forming near $1,900. A close above the $1,900 level might start a fresh increase. In the stated case, the price could rise toward the $1,950 resistance.
