It traded close to the 1.236 Fib extension level of the recent surge from the $316 swing low to $415 high. More importantly, there are two key bullish trend lines forming with support near $365 and $340 on the 4-hours chart of ETH/USD.

The pair is currently recovering and it is back above the $350 level. An initial resistance is near the $380 level, above which the bulls may perhaps push the price above $400. A daily close above the $400 level could lead the price towards the $420 and $432 levels in the coming days.

Downsides Limited in Ether (ETH)?

If Ethereum remains below the $400 and $380 resistance levels, there could be more downsides. The first major support is near the $340 level, below which the price might struggle in the short term.

The next major support is near the $305 and $300 levels (the recent breakout zone), below which the bears are likely to target an extended correction towards the $280 support level.
