    On the upside, the price is facing hurdles near $1,600 and $1,615. There is also a connecting bearish trend line forming with resistance near $1,610 on the same chart.

    Fresh Drop in ETH?
    If Ethereum fails to continue higher above the $1,600 and $1,610 resistance levels, it could resume its decline. An initial support on the downside is near the $1,550 level and the trend line.
    The first major support is near the $1,540 zone and the 100 hourly SMA. A downside break below the $1,550 and $1,540 levels could open the doors for a move towards the $1,500 level.
