Ethereum Price Bearish Bias
There was no relief for buyers since ETH price failed to move above the $800 level against the US Dollar. The price started a fresh downside wave and tumbled below the $750 and $720 support levels. The decline was such that the price even broke the $680 support level. It seems like the price is under a lot of bearish pressure and it may even break the $650 support.
The recent low formed was at $657 and it looks like the pair may even not correct in the short term. An initial resistance is around the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $783 high to $657 low. There is also a major connecting bearish trend line forming with resistance at $720 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The same trend line resistance is near the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $783 high to $657 low. Therefore, the $720 level is a major resistance for a recovery in the near term. Above $720, the price may retest the $750 level.
On the downside, the recent low of $657 is a short term support. Below $657, the price could even break the $650 level and trade towards the $600 handle.
