It seems like the bulls defended the $1,500 support. A low was formed near $1,490 and the price started a major increase. There was a clear move above the $1,550 and $1,580 resistance levels. Ether even cleared the 50% Fib retracement level of the key drop from the $1,685 swing high to $1,490 low.

The next major resistance is now forming near the $1,675 level. Any more gains may perhaps open the doors for a move towards the $1,700 resistance in the near term. A clear move above the $1,700 resistance could pump the price towards the $1,800 level.

Fresh Decline in ETH?

If ethereum fails to rise above the $1,650 resistance, it could start a fresh downside correction. An initial support on the downside is near the $1,610 zone.

The next major support is near $1,585 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. A downside break below the $1,585 support might start a sharp decline. In the stated case, ether price might decline towards the $1,540 level.
