Ethereum Price Remains At Risk
Ethereum’s price attempted a recovery wave from the $1,600 support zone. ETH price climbed above the $1,630 level but the bears were active near the $1,650 zone, like Bitcoin.
The price is again moving lower and showing bearish signs. There are also two bearish trend lines forming with resistance near $1,630 and $1,640 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. Ether is now trading below $1,640 and the 100-hourly Simple Moving Average.
On the upside, the price might face resistance near the $1,630 level and the first trend line. The next resistance is near the $1,640 level, the second trend line, and the 100 hourly SMA. It is close to the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $1,750 swing high to the $1,600 low.
A close above the $1,640 level might send the price toward the $1,670 zone. The main resistance is now forming near $1,700 or the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $1,750 swing high to the $1,600 low.

To start a fresh increase, Ethereum must settle above the $1,700 resistance zone. The next resistance might be near $1,750. Any more gains might send the price toward the $1,800 resistance.
