Ethereum was priced at $3028.86 and the coin has been hovering around the above price level for the past 48 hours. Immediate resistance for the coin was $3085.60 after the coin has been knocked off that level several times in recent days.

Continued rejection of the resistance sign could lead Ethereum to trade near the USD 2839.12 support level.

A drop to that level would mean a 6.44% drop. In the event that the bulls resurface, the coin would target the resistance mark at $3391.95 and then $3609.61. Trading volume was in the red, indicating fewer buyers at the time of writing.

Ever since ETH went into a sell-off about a week ago, the coin has started showing bearish price action as it flashed bearish momentum. At press time, ETH continued to exhibit bearish price action and the coin had witnessed the bulls taking over for a very short period of time, which was a matter of hours.

MACD was still negative at this point as the indicator was below zero. This indicates the strength of the bears. It is quite early to say whether ETH would pick up price momentum during the coming trading sessions.

MACD has shown a bullish crossover, with small green histograms resurfacing, but continued price moves in the same direction will cause the indicator to stay below the half-line.
