There are plenty of supports on the downside, starting at $ 690. It is close to the 50% fib retracement level of the recent spike from $ 663 to $ 717. On the upside, the $ 718-720 resistance zone is a major hurdle for the bulls.

A clear break above the USD 720 resistance will most likely open the doors for further upside move. The next major resistance is near the $ 750 level above which ether could test $ 765.
