Ethereum Price Holds Key Support

Ethereum price remained well-bid above the $3,350 support zone. ETH formed a base and started a fresh increase after it formed a double-bottom pattern near $3,350, as discussed yesterday.

It outperformed Bitcoin and broke the $3,450 resistance. There was a clear move above the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $3,650 swing high to the $3,350 low. Besides, there was a break above a key bearish trend line with resistance near $3,460 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD.

Ethereum is now trading above $3,450 and the 100-hourly Simple Moving Average. It is also showing positive signs for more gains above the $3,535 level. On the upside, the price might face resistance near the $3,580 level or the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $3,650 swing high to the $3,350 low.

The first major resistance is near the $3,650 level. An upside break above the $3,650 resistance might send the price higher. The next key resistance sits at $3,720, above which the price might gain traction and rise toward the $3,750 level.

A clear move above the $3,750 level might send Ether toward the $3,880 resistance. Any more gains could send Ether toward the $4,000 resistance zone in the coming days.

Another Decline In ETH?

If Ethereum fails to clear the $3,580 resistance, it could start another decline. Initial support on the downside is near $3,500. The first major support is $3,450.

A clear move below the $3,450 support might push the price toward $3,350. Any more losses might send the price toward the $3,220 level in the near term.
