Ethereum Price Downside Break?
Yesterday, we saw a correction wave towards $19.80-90 in ETH price vs the US Dollar. The price traded as high as $19.99 where it found sellers. It also managed to break the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $20.54 high to $18.05 low. However, it failed to break the 76.4% Fib level of the same wave. It resulted in a downside move, as the price broke the $19.50 support.
During the downside move, there were two important breaks. First, a major bullish trend line with support at $19.25 on the hourly chart (ETH/USD, data feed via SimpleFX) was cleared. Second, the price settled below 100 simple moving average at $19.20. This means the price is now at a risk of a downside move. It already cleared the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the recent move from the $18.05 low to $19.99 high. If the ETH sellers manage to push the price below $19.00, there can be more declines.
Alternatively, we can say a break below the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent move from the $18.05 low to $19.99 high at $18.79 might open the doors for $18.05 in the short term.
