ETH Falls Below $180, More Pressure Ahead?

Ethereum saw a small decline of around 3.26% over the past 24 hours and it currently trades at $178. ETH has seen a further 10% drop over the past month. The cryptocurrency recently met resistance at the 100-days EMA and failed to break above it which caused ETH to roll over and fall.

Ethereum remains the second-largest cryptocurrency with a market cap of $19.32 billion.

Looking at the ETH/USD 1-day chart:

  • Since our previous ETH/USD analysis, the cryptocurrency continued to fall after meeting the resistance at the 100-days EMA. ETH failed to close above resistance at $193.66 and proceeded to fall further beneath $180. 
  • From above: The nearest level of resistance lies at $185 and $187.84. Above this, resistance is located at $190, $193.66, and then at the 100-days EMA. If the bulls can penetrate above the 100-days EMA, resistance is expected at $200 and $202 (200-days EMA).
  • From below: The nearest level of support lies at $178.80. Beneath this, support lies at $171.97, $165.23 (September low-day close), $160, $158.61, and $152.38.
  • The trading volume has been diminishing during October and remains relatively low.
  • In our last analysis, the Stocahstic RSI had produced a bearish crossover signal which led to the recent price fall. The RSI has recently slipped beneath the 50 level which shows that the sellers are starting to take control over the market momentum. 


Looking at the ETH/BTC 1-day chart:

  • The trading volume is also diminishing within this market.
  • The RSI is currently battling the 50 level as the bulls fight to remain in charge of the market momentum. The Stochastic RSI looks promising for the bulls as it trades in oversold conditions as we wait for a bullish crossover signal to send us higher.
