On the downside, the first major support is near the $230 level (the recent breakout zone) and the trend line. It is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent upward move from the $223 swing low to $235 high.
Once the current correction wave is complete, there are chances of another increase above the $235 resistance zone. In the mentioned case, ether price might continue to rise towards the $245 and $250 resistance levels in the coming sessions.
Another Failure in ETH?

The next major support is near the $224 level, below which the bears are likely to eye a sustained downward move.
