Ethereum Price Decline


This past week, there were heavy losses noted in ETH price once it broke the $400 level against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair declined sharply and broke many supports such as $380, $350 and $320. The price is now well below the $340 level and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). On the upside, an initial resistance is around the $330 level and $335 zone.


Moreover, the 23.6% fib retracement level of the last drop from the $410 high to $304 low is also a crucial barrier. Above this, there is a connecting bearish trend line formed with resistance at $330 on the 4-hours chart of ETH/USD. A push above the trend line resistance could push the price above the $344 level. The next resistance is the 50% fib retracement level of the last drop from the $410 high to $304 low at $357. Therefore, it seems like there are many barriers on the upside near the $340 and $360 zone.
