More Upsides in ETH?

If Ethereum fails to climb above $3,380, it could decline further. An immediate support on the downside is near the $3,260 level and the triangle lower trend line.

If there is a downside break below the triangle trend line, the price might even trade below $3,200. In the stated case, ether price may possibly decline towards the $3,000 support.
