Ethereum Slips, What Are The Next Essential Trading Levels For The Coin?
Ethereum has slipped back into the charts at the time of writing. In the past week, the coin lost about 10% of its value. The bears have become stronger in the market as the buyers have left the market.
The currency’s technical outlook remained bearish and selling pressure mounted. The coin would remain that way through subsequent trading sessions.
The coin has also witnessed a sustained sell-off in the past 48 hours. Ethereum fell below its long-standing $1900 support line. Over the past 24 hours, the coin has been trying to recover itself, but bearish price action is still strong at the time of writing. The bears may be exerting pressure to push the coins below the $1700 price.
A drop below the $1700 price level will send ETH down another 19%. To give the bulls a breather, ETH must once again trade above the $1900 price.
