Ethereum Price is Facing Hurdles

The price even broke the $3,100 level and spiked below the $3,000 level. A low was formed near $2,980 before the price started a decent recovery. It climbed above the $3,050 resistance level and reclaimed the 100 hourly simple moving average.
There was a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $3,280 high to $2,980 low. However, ether price is now facing a strong resistance near the $3,150 level.
There is also a major bearish trend line forming with resistance near $3,140 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The trend line is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $3,280 high to $2,980 low. The main resistance is now forming near the $3,180 level.

Fresh Drop in ETH?
If ethereum fails to continue higher above the $3,150 and $3,180 resistance levels, it could start another decline. An immediate support on the downside is near the $3,080 level.
The first key support is near the $3,020 level. The main support is now forming near $3,000. A downside break below the $3,000 support zone could spark a sharp decline. The next major support could be $2,880.
