Ethereum (ETH) Price Analysis
Ethereum (ETH) seems to be under the control of the bears, and the digital currency could test the Fib extension zones from here. The value of the coin is already fluctuating around the 50 percent extension at the $424 mark and it might be due for a decline towards the 61.8 Fib extension close to the swing low.
The longer-term 200-Day simple moving average is above the 100-Day simple moving average signaling that the path of least resistance is heading south or the sell-off is likely to continue instead of reversing. Nevertheless, the relative strength index is already sinking to the oversold zone.
It’s yet to increase to indicate the return of buying pressure. Stochastic oscillator is in the oversold zone as well but is not showing signs of recovery yet. If the digital currency continues to head south, it might test the $400 mark in the short-term, but if the bulls are able to overtake the bears, the value of the coin could surge and break its key resistance at the $474 mark.
