There was a spike above the $2,600 resistance zone. A new multi-week high was formed near $2,642 and the price is now consolidating gains.

There was a minor decline below $2,600, but Ethereum stayed above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent rally from the $2,346 swing low to the $2,642 high. Ethereum is now trading above $2,500 and the 100-hourly Simple Moving Average.
