Ethereum Price Turns Positive

It seems like there is a crucial rising channel forming with support near $350 on the 4-hours chart of ETH/USD. On the upside, an initial resistance is near the channel resistance at $395. The first major resistance for the bulls is near the $400 level.
The 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $490 swing high to $310 low is also near the $400 level to act as a hurdle for the bulls. To move into a positive zone, ether must climb above the $400 resistance.
The next major resistance is near the $420 level, above which the bulls are likely to aim a test of the $500 handle in the coming days.
