Ethereum Price Downtrend
There was a nasty decline in ETH price from well above $800 this past week against the US Dollar. The price started a downside move and traded below the $800 and $700 support levels. The downside pressure was aggressive and the price traded as low as $642.63. A recovery wave was initiated from the mentioned low, but the recovery was capped by the $740 level.
It moved above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $873 high to $642 low. However, buyers were not able to push the price above the $740-750 resistance. Moreover, there was a failure near the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $873 high to $642 low. There was a major rejection noted from the $750 level and the price declined. On the upside, there is also a key connecting bearish trend line forming with resistance at $710 on the 4-hours chart of ETH/USD.
As long as the price is below the trend line and $720, it remains in a downtrend. Further to the topside, there is another bearish trend line with current resistance at $820. On the downside, the recent low near $642 is a short term support. A push below $642 could take the price towards $600.
