Ethereum Price Downside Break
Yesterday, there was an increase in buying interest, which pushed ETH price above $49.50 against the US Dollar. First, there was a slight push towards the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $42.45 low to $48.5 high. Later, it found support, gained pace and moved towards the $51 level. A new weekly high was formed at $50.99 where it faced sellers. As a result, a downside move was initiated.
During the downside move, the price broke the $50.20 support area. Also, there was a break below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $42.56 low to $50.99 high. This was not all, as there was a break below a bullish trend line with support at $49.35 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. It looks like the price has made a short term top near $50.99.
The recent break was catching, and could spark a minor dip towards $47.70 in the near term. The next support is around the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $42.56 low to $50.99 high. Any further downsides may take the price towards $46.78.
