The price of ether is currently trading beneath $1,650 as well as the 100 hourly simple moving average. It appears that the price may drop further, with $1,570 acting as strong support.
The $1,600 mark and the area of support for the fractured channel present an immediate upward barrier. Near the $1,665 area and the 100 hourly simple moving average is the first significant barrier. Currently, the $1,680 region is where the greatest resistance is emerging.
The price might potentially increase to $1,720 if there is a clear rise above the $1,680 mark. In the aforementioned scenario, the price can increase in the direction of the $1,750 to $1,780 resistance zone.
Even more losses in ETH?
Ethereum may keep falling if it is unable to overcome the $1,680 resistance. Near the $1,570 region is a first area of support on the downside.
Near the $1,570 level is also where the upward movement from the $1,356 swing low to $1,785 high is 50% Fibonacci retracement level. Below $1,520, where there is a chance of a strong decline, is where the next significant support is located. In the aforementioned scenario, the price of ether might potentially fall in the near future toward the $1,400 support.
