On the upside, an immediate resistance is near the $2,700 level. The first major resistance is near the $2,750 level and the recent higher. A close above the $2,750 level could start a major increase towards the $2,850 level. The next major resistance is near the $3,000 zone.

Dips Limited in ETH?

If Ethereum fails to clear the $2,700 and $2,750 resistance levels, it could start a downside correction. An initial support on the downside is near the $2,600 zone and the channel trend line.

A downside break below the channel support could push the price towards the $2,500 support and the 100 hourly SMA. The 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $2,277 swing low to $2,746 high is also near the $2,510 level. The next key support is near the $2,450 level. Any more losses could lead the price towards the $2,400 support in the near term.
