The next major resistance is now forming near the $1,675 level. Any more gains may perhaps open the doors for a move towards the $1,700 resistance in the near term. A clear move above the $1,700 resistance could pump the price towards the $1,800 level.

Fresh Decline in ETH?

If ethereum fails to rise above the $1,650 resistance, it could start a fresh downside correction. An initial support on the downside is near the $1,610 zone.

The next major support is near $1,585 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. A downside break below the $1,585 support might start a sharp decline. In the stated case, ether price might decline towards the $1,540 level.
