A low was formed near $1,937 before the price started a short-term upside correction. Ether climbed above the $1,960 and $1,975 levels. There was a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $2,132 high to $1,937 low.

The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $2,132 high to $1,937 low is near $2,050 to act as a resistance. There is also a major bearish trend line forming with resistance near $2,065 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD.

To move into a bullish zone, ether price must break the $2,010 resistance and then gain strength for a move above the trend line resistance.

More Losses in ETH?

If Ethereum fails to clear the $2,010 resistance, it could correct further lower. The first major support is now forming near the $1,960 level and the triangle lower trend line.

The main support is now near the $1,940 level. A clear downside break below the triangle support and the $1,940 zone could lead the price towards the $1,880 support level in the coming sessions. Any more losses will most likely call for a test of $1,850.
