On the upside, the price is facing resistance near the $2,050 zone. The first key resistance is near the $2,070 level. A clear move above the $2,070 level could spark bullish moves. The next resistance is near $2,120, above which the price could aim for a move toward the $2,200 level. Any more gains could start a wave toward the $2,250 level.

Are Dips Limited in ETH?

If Ethereum fails to clear the $2,070 resistance, it could start a fresh decline. Initial support on the downside is near the $2,000 level and the 100-hourly Simple Moving Average.

The next key support is $1,985 or the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent increase from the $1,905 swing low to the $2,068 high. The main support is $1,965. A downside break below the $1,965 support might trigger more losses. In the stated case, Ether could drop toward the $1,905 support zone in the near term.
