    On the upside, the price is facing a strong resistance near the $1,600 and $1,615 levels. A daily close above the $1,600 level could open the doors for a fresh rally. In the stated case, the price might easily rise towards the $1,700 level.
    Fresh Drop in ETH?
    If Ethereum fails to continue higher above the $1,600 and $1,615 resistance levels, it could start a fresh decline. An initial support on the downside is near the $1,550 level.
    The first major support is near the $1,500 zone and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The next major support is near the $1,450 level. It is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the $1,296 swing low to $1,618 high. Any more losses might call for a test of the $1,420 support zone.
