Ethereum is Fighting for Its Life as Bulls Struggle to Defend Critical Support Level

Thursday 17 September 2020, 8:30 AM AEST - 4 days ago

  • Ethereum is currently in the process of rebounding from its daily lows that were set just a handful of hours ago
  • The cryptocurrency has been facing heightened selling pressure as of late, struggling to build momentum as it remains below $370
  • One analyst is now stating that the cryptocurrency is fighting for its life as it trades right around a crucial support level
