Ethereums Price Action Could Resemble a Car Crash if it Breaks Below $190

Saturday 23 May 2020, 6:38 AM AEST - 3 months ago

  • Ethereum has once again declined back down to its long-held consolidation channel around $200
  • The cryptocurrency is now showing some signs of weakness as it continues performing poorly alongside Bitcoin and most other major altcoins
  • This weakness could soon lead it down to a key support level that must be maintained by buyers
  • A failure for ETH to hold above this level could mean a car crash style decline is imminent, according to one analyst

Ethereum is once again consolidating within the lower-$200 region. This comes shortly after it was on track to gain some ground against Bitcoin, rallying to highs of over $215 before descending lower.

Buyers are ardently attempting to keep the cryptocurrency above $200, as a decline beneath this level seen yesterday was met with significant buying pressure that ultimately led it higher.

Although analysts are noting that it does appear to be well-positioned to see a bounce around its current price levels, one is also adding that a decline below $190 could be dire.

He even notes that it could trigger a car crash style decline that leads it to cut deeply into its recent gains.

Ethereum Hovers Around $200 as Technical Strength Weakens

At the time of writing, Ethereum is trading down just under 2% at its current price of $202. This marks a notable decline from weekly highs of over $215 that were set just a few days ago.

It also marks a rebound from daily lows of $194 that were set yesterday evening as bears attempted to invalidate the cryptocurrencys strength.

This weakness has come about as the result of a recent technical breakdown that caused Ethereum to invalidate a triangle formation that it was caught within.

One analyst spoke about this breakdown in a recent tweet, noting that the cryptos moon mission is now delayed, referencing a chart pointing to overt technical weakness.
