Ethereum Price Retests Key Support

Ethereum price failed to gain pace for a move above the $3,580 and $3,650 resistance levels. ETH reacted to the downside like Bitcoin and declined below the $3,500 support. There was a sharp move below $3,420, but the bulls were again active near $3,350.

A low was formed near the $3,350 level and the price is again rising. There was a move above the $3,380 and $3,400 resistance levels. The price was able to clear the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $3,649 swing high to the $3,350 low.

Ethereum is now trading below $3,550 and the 100-hourly Simple Moving Average. It seems like the price could form a double-bottom pattern and rise toward the $3,700 resistance. If there is a fresh increase, the price might face resistance near the $3,460 level.

The first major resistance is near the $3,500 level or the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $3,649 swing high to the $3,350 low. There is also a connecting bearish trend line forming with resistance near $3,500 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD.

An upside break above the $3,500 resistance might send the price higher. The next key resistance sits at $3,580, above which the price might gain traction and rise toward the $3,650 level.

A clear move above the $3,650 level might send Ether toward the $3,720 resistance. Any more gains could send Ether toward the $3,800 resistance zone.

Downside Break In ETH?

If Ethereum fails to clear the $3,500 resistance, it could continue to move down. Initial support on the downside is near $3,380. The first major support is at $3,350.

A clear move below the $3,350 support might push the price toward $3,250. Any more losses might send the price toward the $3,120 level in the near term.
