It seems like there is a key connecting bullish trend line forming with support near $392 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The next major support is near the $390 level since it is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent rally from the $376 swing low to $402 high.
On the upside, the $400 level is a massive resistance for the bulls. The next immediate resistance is near the $402 swing high, above which ether is likely to climb higher towards the $412 level. A clear break above the $412 resistance could open the doors for a test of $420.
