Ethereum Price is Facing a Major Resistance
Ethereum failed to stay above the $2,000 support level and it extended its decline. ETH even broke the $1,800 level and it settled well below the 100 hourly simple moving average.
It traded as low as $1,731 and recently started an upside correction. Ether climbed above the $1,800 and $1,850 resistance levels. There was a break above the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $2,495 swing high to $1,731 low.
However, it is now facing a strong resistance near the $2,200 level. There is also a major bearish trend line forming with resistance near $2,200 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD.

The trend line is close to the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $2,495 swing high to $1,731 low. A clear break above the trend line resistance could set the pace for a strong move above $2,200. The next key resistance is near $2,400 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Any more gains could lead the price towards the $2,800 level.
Fresh Decline in ETH?
If Ethereum fails to continue higher above the $2,200 and $2,400 resistance levels, it could start another decline. An initial support on the downside is near the $2,000 level.
The first key support is near the $1,800 level. The main support is now forming near the $1,700 level and a connecting support trend line. Any more losses could trigger a larger decline towards $1,500 in the coming sessions. The next major support is near the $1,200 level.
