Ethereum Price Extends Losses

Ethereum price failed to continue higher above the $2,950 resistance, like Bitcoin. A high was formed at $2,951 and the price started a fresh decline. There was a steady decline below the $2,920 and $2,900 levels.

A low has formed at $2,864 and the price is now consolidating losses. It is trading near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $2,951 swing high to the $2,864 low. Ethereum is now trading below $2,950 and the 100-hourly Simple Moving Average.

Immediate resistance is near the $2,900 level. The first major resistance is near the $2,920 level or the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $2,951 swing high to the $2,864 low.

There is also a key bearish trend line forming with resistance at $2,910 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The next key resistance sits at $2,950 and 100-hourly Simple Moving Average, above which the price might gain traction and rise toward the $3,020 level.

If there is a clear move above the $3,020 level, the price might rise and test the $3,150 resistance. Any more gains could send Ether toward the $3,250 resistance zone.
