The next major resistance is near the $1,230 level and the $1,250 zone. To start a real recovery wave and gain bullish momentum, the price must settle above $1,250. A clear close above the $1,250 resistance could send the price towards the $1,320 resistance zone. Any more gains might open the doors for a test of the $1,400 resistance zone.

Fresh Decline in ETH?

If ethereum fails to climb above the $1,250 resistance, it could start another decline. An initial support on the downside is near the $1,190 level and the trend line.

The next major support is near the $1,150 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average, below which ether price may perhaps decline further. In the stated scenario, the price could decline towards the $1,100 support zone in the near term. Any more losses might call for a move towards the main $1,070 support.
