The price of Ethereum has fallen below $1,900, dropping from the $2,000 mark that was previously held by bulls. This has led to another sell-off and the bearish influence remains strong despite attempts at recovery.
In the last 24 hours, Ethereum has risen by only 1.2%, but on the weekly chart, the altcoin has seen a significant drop of over 10%. The technical outlook for Ethereum is also in favor of the bears, as demand and accumulation for the altcoin have decreased. In order for Ethereum to make a recovery, it is crucial for it to breach the immediate resistance strength from buyers.
Despite this, most altcoins, including Ethereum, have remained bullish on the higher time-frame structure. However, bulls must defend the following support line or supply zone for Ethereum to start its recovery.
With Bitcoin struggling under the $30,000 price mark, many altcoins are also experiencing difficulty in breaking through their immediate price ceilings. On the one-day chart, the decline in the market capitalization of Ethereum indicates a decrease in buyers.
