The next major resistance is near $1,400 level. A clear break above $1,400 might start a decent increase towards the $1,450 level. Any more gains may perhaps open the doors for a move towards the $1,500 resistance.
Fresh Decline in ETH?
If ethereum fails to recover above the $1,400 resistance, it could start a fresh decline. An initial support on the downside is near the $1,330 zone and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
The next major support is near the $1,288 level. A downside break below the $1,288 support might spark another sharp decline. In the stated case, ether price might drop towards the $1,220 level in the near term.  Any more losses could increase selling and the price might drop to $1,150.
