If the bulls push the price above the $3,000 resistance, Ether could even rally toward the $3,120 resistance. In the stated case, the price could rise toward the $3,250 level in the near term. Any more gains might call for a test of $3,400.

Downside Correction In ETH?

If Ethereum fails to clear the $2,895 resistance, it could start a downside correction. Initial support on the downside is near the $2,850 level and the trend line zone.

The next key support could be the $2,800 zone or 50% Fib retracement level of the recent move from the $2,722 swing low to the $2,894 high.
