The price may encounter resistance near the $1,650 mark on the upside. It is very near the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the decline from the swing high of $1,693 to the low of $1,580. The 100-hourly simple moving average or the trend line, which are both close to $1,665, will be the next resistance.
Another Drop in ETH?
Ethereum may begin another slide if it is unable to overcome the $1,665 resistance. Near $1,600 is where initial support on the downside is located.

The $1,580 area serves as the first significant level of support. More losses can occur if the price breaks lower than $1,580 on the downside. Near the $1,550 support level is the next significant level of support. Any additional declines might push the price down to $1,520 or even to a new low below $1,500.
