It seems like there is a crucial contracting triangle forming with resistance near $2,880 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. A successful break above the triangle resistance and $2,900 could spark a bullish wave. In the stated case, there are chances that ether price could even surpass the $3,000 level and the 100 hourly SMA.
The next major resistance is near the $3,300 level. Any more gains could lead the price towards the $3,500 level.
Fresh Decline in ETH?
If Ethereum fails to continue higher above the $2,880 and $3,000 resistance levels, it could start another decline. An initial support on the downside is near the $2,800 level and the triangle trend line.
The first key support is near the $2,580 level. The 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $2,158 swing low to $3,006 high is also near the $2,580 level. Any more losses could trigger a larger decline in the coming sessions.
