Ethereum Price Faces Major Hurdle

Ethereum price attempted a fresh increase above the $2,200 level, like Bitcoin. ETH climbed above the $2,250 and $2,260 levels. However, the bears were active near $2,300 and the 100-hourly Simple Moving Average.

A high was formed near $2,289 and the price recently saw a bearish reaction. There was a move below the $2,250 level. The price traded below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the upward wave from the $1,860 swing low to the $2,289 high.

If there is a fresh increase, the price might face resistance near the $2,250 level and the trend line. The first major resistance is now near $2,280. The next major hurdle sits at $2,300.

A close above the $2,300 resistance could start a decent upward move. The next key resistance is near $2,400. If the bulls push Ethereum above $2,400, there could be a rally toward $2,500. Any more gains might send the price toward the $2,620 zone.

More Losses in ETH?

If Ethereum fails to clear the $2,250 resistance, it could start a fresh decline. Initial support on the downside is near the $2,120 level.

The first key support could be the $2,080 zone or the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward wave from the $1,860 swing low to the $2,289 high. A downside break and a close below $2,080 might spark strong bearish moves. In the stated case, Ether could test the $2,020 support. Any more losses might send the price toward the $1,960 level.
