The price is still holding the $2,700 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

Ethereum Price Is Holding Support
Yesterday, ethereum started a fresh increase above the $2,650 resistance zone. ETH gained pace above the $2,700 and $2,750 levels. There was also a break above the $2,800 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

Ether price even traded below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $2,530 swing low to $2,996 high.
There was a break below a short-term bullish trend line with support near $2,750 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair is now testing the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $2,530 swing low to $2,996 high.

It is also holding the $2,700 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. An initial resistance on the upside is near the $2,780 and $2,800 levels. The first major resistance is near the $2,850 level.
The main breakout resistance is now forming near the $2,900 level. A close above the $2,900 level will most likely call for a test of the $3,000 barrier in the near term.
Dips Supported in ETH?
If Ethereum fails to clear the $2,800 and $2,850 resistance levels, it could extend its decline. An initial support on the downside is near the $2,700 level.
The main support is now forming near the $2,680 level and the 100 hourly SMA. A downside break below $2,680 and $2,650 could open the doors for a larger decline. In the stated case, ether price might revisit USD 2,500.
