Ethereum Price Lacks Momentum

Ethereum’s price managed to settle above the $1,640 level. It seems like ETH is attempting a recovery wave above the $1,650 resistance zone, like Bitcoin.

Recently, there was a break above a connecting bearish trend line with resistance near $1,650 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. However, the bulls are facing resistance near $1,660 or the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $1,698 swing high to the $1,621 low.

Ether is now trading near $1,650 and the 100-hourly Simple Moving Average. On the upside, the price might face resistance near the $1,660 level. The next resistance is near the $1,670 level or the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $1,698 swing high to the $1,621 low.

A close above the $1,670 level might send the price toward the $1,700 pivot zone. To start a decent increase, Ethereum must settle above the $1,700 level. In the stated case, the price might rise toward the $1,780 level. Any more gains might send the price toward the $1,850 resistance.

Another Decline in ETH?

If Ethereum fails to clear the $1,660 resistance, it could start another decline. Initial support on the downside is near the $1,640 level.

The next key support is close to $1,620. If there is a downside break below $1,620, the price could accelerate lower toward the $1,5800 level. Any more losses might send the price toward the $1,540 level in the near term.
