The first major resistance is now near $2,445. A close above the $2,445 resistance could send the price toward $2,500. The next key resistance is near $2,550. If the bulls remain in action and push ETH above $2,550, there could be a drift toward $2,620. The next resistance sits at $2,650, above which Ethereum might rally and test the $2,800 zone.

Another Decline in ETH?

If Ethereum fails to clear the $2,400 resistance, it could start another decline. Initial support on the downside is near the $2,350 level.

The first key support could be the $2,320 zone. A downside break and a close below $2,320 might start another major decline. In the stated case, Ether could test the $2,250 support. Any more losses might send the price toward the $2,120 level.
