A close above the $2,020 resistance could trigger another strong rise. The next resistance is near $2,090, above which the price may aim to move towards $2,120 levels. Any more gains could start a wave towards the $2,200 level.
Another drop in ETH?
If Ethereum fails to clear the $2,020 resistance, it could start a fresh decline. The initial support on the downside is near the $1,980 level and the 100-hourly simple moving average.
The next major support is $1,950. The main support is $1,900. A fall below the $1,900 support level could lead to more losses. In the described case, Ether may drop towards the $1,850 support zone in the near term. Any further losses may require a drop to the $1,800 level.
