The channel resistance coincides with the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $612 swing high to $580 swing low.
A successful break above the channel resistance could start a fresh increase above $605. The next major resistance is near $612, above which ether is likely to revisit the $620 resistance zone.
