Ethereum trading is currently below $1.400, the 100 hourly simple moving mean. The upside is that the price faces resistance at the $1,380 mark. Near $1,400 is the next significant resistance and so is the simple moving average of 100 hours.

If the price breaks the $1,400 resistance, it could push the price to the $1.450 mark. A move above $1,400 may open the door to a movement towards $1.480 resistance.

New Drop in Ethereum?

It could begin a new decline if it fails to surpass the $1,400 resistance or the 100-hourly simple moving average. The $1,325 area is a support zone for the downside.

Nearly $1,300 is the next major support. Support is at $1,280. Another sharp drop could be possible if the support falls below $1,280. The above scenario could lead to a decline in ether prices towards $1,200.
