Ethereum Price Eyes Steady Recovery

Ethereum failed to climb above $3,200 and extended its decline. ETH declined below the $3,050 and $3,000 support levels to move further into a bearish zone.

A clear upside break above the $3,200 level could spark a decent recovery wave. The next key resistance is near the $3,300 level. Any more gains could send the price towards the $3,420 level in the near term.

Fresh Decline in ETH?

If ethereum fails to start a fresh increase above the $3,200 level, it could start another decline. An initial support on the downside is near the $3,060 level.

The first key support is now forming near the $3,000 level. A downside break below the $3,000 level might put a lot of pressure on the bulls. In the stated case, there is a risk of a new monthly low below the $2,931 level.
