There was a rejection noted around the $446 level in ETH price against the US Dollar. The ETH/USD pair failed to break resistance and declined back below $430. There was a break below the $425 and $420 support levels. As a result, there was a new low formed at $415.54 and the price is currently in a bearish zone. An initial resistance is around the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $450 high to $415 low.
If there is a break above $423, the price could extend gains towards the $430 level.
