Ethereum Price Remains Supported

A clear move above the $1,620 level might send the price towards $1,650 resistance. Any more gains may perhaps open the doors for a test of the $1,700 resistance in the near term.

Fresh Decline in ETH?

If ethereum fails to rise above the $1,585 resistance, it could start another decline. An initial support on the downside is near the $1,540 zone and the channel trend line.

The next major support is near $1,500, below which ether price might gain bearish momentum. In the stated case, the price may perhaps decline towards the $1,425 level. Any more losses may perhaps send the price towards the $1,380 zone.
