A close above the $2,020 resistance could start another sharp rise. The next resistance is near $2,090, above which the price could aim for a move towards the $2,120 level. Any further gains could start a wave towards the $2,200 level.
Another drop in ETH?
If Ethereum fails to overcome the $2,020 resistance, it could start a new decline. Initial support on the downside is near the $1,980 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
