The 50% Fib retracement level of the upward wave from the low of $ 1,215 to $ 1,437. If there is a downside break below the $ 1,325, there is a possibility of a decline towards the $ 1,280 level.

New rise in ETH?
If Ethereum stays stable above the USD 1,280 support zone, it could see another spike. Initial resistance is near the $ 1,400 level and the upper trendline of the channel.
A close above the channel resistance could open the doors for further gains towards the $ 1,440 level. A clear break above the USD 1,440 zone could pave the way for a push towards the USD 1,500 resistance zone in the upcoming sessions. The next key target could be near the $ 1,550 and $ 1,580 levels.
