Ethereum Price Remains At Risk

Ethereum attempted a recovery wave above the $1,200 resistance zone. However, the bears were active near the $1,250 level. A high was formed near $1,256 and the price started a fresh decline.

There was a move below the $1,200 and $1,150 levels. The price even settled below the $1,200 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. A low was formed near $1,050 and ether is now consolidating losses. An immediate resistance is near the $1,090 level.

There is also a connecting bearish trend line forming with resistance near $1,095 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The trend line is near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $1,256 swing high to $1,050 low.

The next major resistance is near the $1,150 zone. It is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $1,256 swing high to $1,050 low. Any more gains might call for a test of the $1,200 level or the 100 hourly simple moving average.

A clear move above the $1,200 resistance zone may perhaps start a decent upward move. The next major resistance is near the $1,260 level. Any more gains could start a move towards the $1,350 resistance.

More Losses in ETH?

If ethereum fails to rise above the $1,200 resistance, it could continue to move down. An initial support on the downside is near the $1,050 zone.

The next major support is near the $1,000 zone. A clear move and break below the $1,000 zone could start a major decline. In the stated case, the price could slide towards the $880 support zone in the near term.
