Ethereum Price Recovers Ground But Upsides Might Be Limited Above $2,300

A close above the $2,300 resistance could send the price toward $2,400. The next key resistance is near $2,440. If there is a clear move above $2,400, there could be a drift toward $2,500. The next resistance sits at $2,500, above which Ethereum might rally and test the $2,620 zone.

Fresh Decline in ETH?

If Ethereum fails to clear the $2,300 resistance, it could start a fresh decline. Initial support on the downside is near the $2,200 level.

The first key support could be the $2,080 zone. A downside break and a close below $2,080 might start another steady decline. In the stated case, Ether could test the $2,000 support. Any more losses might send the price toward the $1,860 level.
