Moreover, there is a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near $1,740 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. A clear break above the $1,720 high and then a follow up move above $1,750 is must for a fresh increase in the near term.

More Losses in ETH?

If Ethereum fails to climb above the $1,705 and $1,720 resistance levels, it could continue to move down. An initial support on the downside is near the $1,660 level.

The main support is near the $1,650 level. A clear downside break below the $1,650 support is likely to clear the path for a sharp decline. In the stated case, the price might test $1,600 or even $1,580 in the near term.
