There is also a major contracting triangle forming with resistance near $2,650 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The triangle resistance is close to the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $2,847 swing high to $2,149 low. A successful break above the $2,650 and $2,800 levels could open the doors for a steady recovery in the coming sessions. The next major resistance is near the $3,125 level.
Fresh Decline in ETH?
If Ethereum fails to continue higher above the $2,650 and $2,800 resistance levels, it could start another decline. An initial support on the downside is near the $2,300 level and the triangle trend line.
The first key support is near the $2,200 level. The main support is now forming near the $2,000 level. If there is a downside break below the $2,000 zone, the price could decline towards the $1,600 support.
