On the upside, an immediate resistance is near the $2,700 level. The first major resistance is near the $2,750 level and the recent higher. A close above the $2,750 level could start a major increase towards the $2,850 level. The next major resistance is near the $3,000 zone.
Dips Limited in ETH?
If Ethereum fails to clear the $2,700 and $2,750 resistance levels, it could start a downside correction. An initial support on the downside is near the $2,600 zone and the channel trend line.
A downside break below the channel support could push the price towards the $2,500 support and the 100 hourly SMA.

Any more losses could lead the price towards the $2,400 support in the near term.
