Ethereum started a downside correction from the $2,000 resistance against the US Dollar. ETH is consolidating and might decline further towards $1,810.
Ethereum made a couple of attempts to gain strength above the $2,000 resistance zone. However, ETH failed to extend gains and started a downside correction below the $1,950 level.
There was a clear move below the $1,920 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Besides, there was a break below a connecting bullish trend line with support near $1,925 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. Ether price even declined below the $1,900 level.
A low is formed near $1,862 and the price is now consolidating losses. It is now trading below $1,950 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
An immediate resistance on the upside is near the $1,900 level. It is near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $2,030 swing high to $1,862 low. The first major resistance is near the $1,945 and $1,950 levels.
The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $2,030 swing high to $1,862 low is also near the $1,950 level to act as key resistance. A clear move above the $1,950 level could start a steady increase to $2,000. If there are more upsides, the price may perhaps rise towards the $2,080 resistance zone in the near term.
If ethereum fails to rise above the $1,950 resistance, it could continue to move down. An initial support on the downside is near the $1,862 zone.
The next major support is near $1,850, below which there is a risk of a move towards the $1,810 level. If the bears remain in action, the price could even decline towards the $1,720 level.
