Ethereum Price Dives 5%

Ethereum’s price failed to gain momentum for a move above the $1,780 resistance level. Following the Fed’s interest rate decision, similar to Bitcoin, ETH reacted negatively and moved below the $1,720 support level.

There was a clear decline below the $1,700 and $1,640 support levels. The price has dropped by over 5% and traded near $1,630. Currently, the price has formed a low near $1,630 and is consolidating losses. It is trading below $1,700 and the 100-hourly Simple Moving Average.

There is also a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near $1,740 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. Immediate resistance is near the $1,660 level or the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $1,749 swing high to the $1,630 low.

The next major resistance is near the $1,680 level. The first major resistance is near $1,700 or the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $1,749 swing high to the $1,630 low. A proper move above the $1,680 and $1,700 resistance levels might start a steady recovery wave.

The next resistance sits near $1,740 and the trend line, above which Ethereum could rise toward the $1,780 level. Any more gains above the $1,780 resistance zone might send the price toward the $1,850 resistance.

More Losses in ETH?

If Ethereum fails to clear the $1,700 resistance, it could continue to move down. Initial support on the downside is near the $1,630 level and the recent low.

The next major support is near the $1,600 level. If there is a break and close below the $1,600 support, the price could accelerate lower toward the $1,550 support. Any more losses may perhaps send the price toward the $1,500 zone.
