More importantly, there is a crucial contracting triangle forming with resistance near $355 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. To continue higher, the price must break the main $355 resistance level. The next major resistance is near the $360 level, above which the price is likely to accelerate higher towards $365.
A successful close above the $355 resistance and follow up move above the $360 level could also open the doors for a steady rise towards the $400 resistance level in the coming days.
Fresh Bearish Break in ETH?
If Ethereum fails to clear the $355 resistance, there are chances of a fresh decline. An initial support on the downside is near the triangle lower trend line at $350.
The 100 hourly simple moving average is also near the $350 level. A downside break below the $350 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average may perhaps clear the path for a fresh decline towards the $335 support.
