A clear break above the trend line resistance could open the doors for a steady increase above $1,800. An immediate resistance is at $1,828. It is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward wave from the $1,944 swing high to $1,712 low.

The next key resistance is near the $1,855 level, above which ether price might rise steadily towards the $1,900 and $1,920 levels in the near term.

Fresh Decline in ETH?

If Ethereum fails to correct higher above the $1,800 and $1,828 resistance levels, it could decline further lower. The first key support is near the $1,710 level.

The main support seems to be forming near the $1,700 level. If the bulls fail to defend the $1,700 support zone, there is a risk of a drop towards the $1,660 level. Any more loses could possibly lead the price towards the $1,620 level.
