The next key resistance sits at $3,220, above which the price might gain traction and rise toward the $3,250 level. A close above the $3,250 resistance could send the price toward the $3,280 resistance. If there is a move above the $3,280 resistance, Ethereum could even test the $3,350 resistance. Any more gains could send Ether toward the $3,500 resistance zone.

More Losses In ETH?
