It cleared the path for sellers to take control and the price declined more than 8%. There was even a close below the $214 support level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

To initiate the decline, there was a break below a short-term bullish trend line with support at $222 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The decline was such that the price even broke the $200 support and traded as low as $193. At the moment, the price is correcting above $200.
