Ethereum Price Remains at a Risk
After multiple failed attempts near $355 and $350, Ethereum reacted to the downside. ETH price broke the key $330 support level and settled below the 100 hourly simple moving average to move further into a bearish zone.
Ether price even spiked below the $320 support and traded to a new weekly low at $313. The price is down nearly 5% and it is currently correcting losses. There was a break above the $320 level, plus the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $343 high to $313 low.
On the upside, there are many important hurdles for the bulls, starting with $330. It is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $343 high to $313 low.

There is also a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near $330 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The trend line coincides with the previous breakdown support near $332 and $335. A successful close above the trend line, and then follow up move above $335 is needed to start a decent recovery wave. The next key resistance is still near the $350 and $355 levels.
More Losses in ETH?
If Ethereum fails to recover above the $330 and $335 resistance levels, there is a risk of more losses in the near term. An initial support is near the $320 level.
The first major support is near the $310 level (the previous swing low). A break below the $310 support could open the doors for a larger decline below the main $300 support level in the coming sessions.
