  • The $3,000 level held as resistance, then the crypto broke out and tried to retest the $3,000 level as support, but did so unsuccessfully. Ethereum may fall back toward the higher low trendline where it could find support.

  • The crypto trades below the 50-day moving average (green), but above the 200-day moving average (blue), indicating the crypto looks to be in a period of consolidation.

  • The 50-day moving average may act as a spot of resistance, while the 200-day moving averages may hold as support in the future.

  • The Relative Strength Index (RSI) has been fading lower the past few weeks and now sits at 40. This shows there is more selling pressure than buying pressure in the crypto in the past couple of weeks.
