Aayush Jindal | March 9, 2018 | 5:00 am

Key Highlights

  • ETH price extended declines and it recently traded below the $680 support against the US Dollar.
  • There is a major connecting bearish trend line forming with resistance at $720 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via SimpleFX).
  • The pair may not even correct higher and it is likely to extend declines below the $650 level.

Ethereum price declined substantially against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. ETH/USD may continue to decline and it could even test the $600 level.

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.
