If there is an upside break above the trend line, the price could rise towards the $3,190 resistance zone and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The next major resistance is near the $3,200 level, above which ether price could gain bullish momentum. In the stated case, the price could rise towards $3,300 in the near term.

More Losses in ETH?

If ethereum fails to start a fresh increase above the $3,150 level, it could continue to move down. An initial support on the downside is near the $3,080 level.

The first key support is now forming near the $3,050 level. A downside break below the $3,050 level might even spark a move below the $3,000 level. The next major support for the bulls may perhaps be near the $2,880 zone. Any more losses could push the price towards the $2,750 level.
