Ethereum Price Rally Reaches Inflection Zone

After forming a support base above $330, Ethereum started a strong recovery wave. ETH price broke the $340 and $350 resistance levels to move into a positive zone.

There was a close above the $350 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The upward move gained pace after there was a break above a major bearish trend line with resistance near $340 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD.
The next key resistance is near the $380 level. It is close to the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $401 high to $310 swing low. A successful close above the $370 and $380 resistance levels may perhaps open the doors for a decent increase.

Downside Correction in ETH?

If Ethereum fails to clear the $370 resistance or the $380 technical hurdles, there could be a short-term downside correction. An initial support on the downside is near the $360 level.
The next major support is near the $350 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. If ether fails to stay above the $350 support, the price is likely to resume its decline. In the stated case, the bears might aim a retest of the $330 support.
