A clear move above the $1,745 level might send the price towards $1,800 resistance. Any more gains may perhaps open the doors for a test of the $1,850 resistance.

Fresh Decline in ETH?

If ethereum fails to rise above the $1,720 resistance, it could start a fresh decline. An initial support on the downside is near the $1,670 zone and the channel trend line.

The next major support is near $1,655 and the 100 hourly simple moving average, below which ether price might accelerate lower. In the stated case, the price may perhaps decline towards the $1,600 level. Any more losses may perhaps send the price towards the $1,550 level.
