The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $1,808 high to $1,657 low is also near $1,730. The main resistance is now forming near the $1,750 zone (the recent breakdown zone). If the price breaks the $1,730 and $1,750 resistance levels, it could start a decent increase towards $1,800 or even $1,850. An intermediate resistance could be near the $1,780 level or the 100 hourly simple moving average.

More Losses in ETH?

If Ethereum fails to climb above the $1,730 and $1,750 resistance levels, it could continue to move down. An initial support on the downside is near the $1,665 level.

The next major support is near the $1,650 level. A clear downside break below the $1,650 support may possibly open the doors for a drop towards the $1,600 level. Any more losses will most likely push the price towards the key $1,550 support in the coming days.
