  • The price is now trading above $1,170 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
  • There is a short-term bullish flag forming with resistance near $1,200 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via Kraken).
  • The pair could start a fresh decline if there is no clear move above $1,230 and $1,250.

The next major resistance is near the $1,230 level. The key breakout zone sits near the $1,250 level. To move into a positive zone, the price must settle above $1,250. In the stated case, ether price may perhaps rise towards the $1,320 resistance zone. Any more gains might open the doors for a test of the $1,400 resistance zone.

Fresh Decline in ETH?

If ethereum fails to climb above the $1,230 resistance, it could start another decline. An initial support on the downside is near the $1,170 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

The next major support is near the $1,150 level or the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $1,073 swing low to $1,215 high, below which ether price may perhaps gain bearish momentum. In the stated scenario, the price could decline towards the $1,070 support zone.
