Ethereum Price to Decline Further?
There was no respite for ETH price over the weekend, as it remained under a bearish pressure against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. There was a slight decline in ETH/USD, and the pair almost tested the last swing low of $9.30. Looking at the charts, it looks like the pair is preparing for the next move, and currently trading in a range. There is a crucial bearish trend line formed on the hourly chart (data feed via SimpleFX) of ETH/USD.
The highlighted trend line may play a major role in the near term. There is also a range pattern with resistance at $9.60, and support at $9.30. The range resistance is near the trend line. So, it holds a lot of value, and may protect an upside move near $9.50-60. Moreover, the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the decline from the $10.04 high to $9.29 low is also just below the trend line.
Last, the 100 hourly simple moving average is just above the trend line. So, it looks like the ETH price remains at a major risk. If the bulls fail, there can be further declines in ETH/USD.
