On the upside, the price is facing resistance near the $2,390 level. The first major resistance is now near $2,440. A close above the $2,440 resistance could send the price toward $2,500. The next key resistance is near $2,550. If there is a clear move 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.

More Downsides in ETH?

If Ethereum fails to clear the $2,440 resistance, it could continue to move down. Initial support on the downside is near the $2,360 level and the trend line.

The first key support could be the $2,350 zone or the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $2,260 swing low to the $2,430 high. A downside break and a close below $2,350 might start another steady decline. In the stated case, Ether could test the $2,265 support. Any more losses might send the price toward the $2,200 level.
