However, the bulls were active near the $1,820 level. A low is formed near $1,813 and the price is currently rising. There was a break above the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent correction from the $2,040 high to $1,813 low.

There is also a key bullish trend line forming with support near $1,860 on the 4-hours chart of ETH/USD. An immediate resistance on the upside is near the $1,950 level. It coincides with the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent correction from the $2,040 high to $1,813 low.

A clear break above the $1,950 and $1,980 levels will most likely open the doors for more gains. Besides, a daily close above $2,000 will most likely pump the price towards $2,150 and $2,200.

Dips Supported in Ether (ETH)?

If Ethereum struggles to gain pace above the $1,950 level, it could correct lower. The first major support on the downside is near the trend line support and $1,850.

A downside break below the trend line support may possibly call for an extended decline below the $1,813 low. The next major support is near the $1,760 level or the 100 simple moving average (4-hours).
