Ethereum is now trading above $2,040 and the 100-hourly Simple Moving Average. On the upside, the price is facing resistance near the $2,075 zone. It is close to the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $2,132 swing high to the $1,986 low.

The first key resistance is near the $2,100 level. The next resistance sits at $2,130. A clear move above the $2,130 level could send the price toward the $2,150 resistance zone.

The next resistance is near $2,220, above which the price could aim for a move toward the $2,265 level. Any more gains could start a wave toward the $2,320 level.

Another Decline in ETH?

If Ethereum fails to clear the $2,075 resistance, it could start a fresh decline. Initial support on the downside is near the $2,045 level and the 100-hourly Simple Moving Average, below which the bears might gain strength.

The next key support is $2,000. A downside break below $2,000 might spark a strong bearish move. The key support is now at $1,930, below which there is a risk of a move toward the $1,880 level in the near term.
