The 76.4% Fib retracement level of the key upward move from the $890 swing low to $1,351 high is also near the $1,000 level to act as a strong support. The 100 hourly simple moving average is also near the $1,000 zone to act as a strong support in the near term.

If ether price fails to stay above the $1,000 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average, there a risk of a drop towards the $900 support level in the coming sessions.

Fresh Increase in ETH?

If ethereum stays above the $1,000 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average, it could start a fresh increase. An initial resistance on the upside is near the $1,180 level.

The first key resistance is near the $1,200 level. A close above the $1,200 level may possibly push ether price back into a positive zone. In the stated case, it could revisit the $1,300 level.
