  • Ethereum slid by 4.68% on Wednesday. Following on from a 2.85% fall on Tuesday, Ethereum ended the day at $187.37.
  • An early morning intraday high $197.17 saw Ethereum fall well short of the first major resistance level at $201.41.

  • The extended bearish trend, formed at late April 2018’s swing hi $828.97, remained firmly intact. The reversal from June’s current year high $364.49 back through the 23.6% FIB of $257 reaffirmed the extended bearish trend.

Ethereum Price Support

Ethereum slid by 4.68% on Wednesday. Following on from a 2.85% fall from Tuesday, Ethereum ended the day at $187.37.

A particularly bearish morning saw Ethereum slide from an early intraday high $197.17 to a mid-day intraday low $180.

The sell-off saw Ethereum slide through the major support levels of the day.

Finding support at $180, Ethereum managed to break back through the third major support level at $181.38 to cut the deficit on the day.

The extended bearish trend, formed at late April 2018’s swing hi $828.97, remained firmly intact. A reversal from June’s current year high $364.49 back through the 23.6% FIB of $257 reaffirmed the extended bearish trend.

At the time of writing, Ethereum was down by 1.75% to $184.09. Tracking the broader market, Ethereum fell from an early morning high $190.1 to a low $182.53.

Ethereum left the major support and resistance levels untested early on.

For the day ahead

Ethereum would need to move back through to $188 levels to take a run at the first major resistance level at $196.36.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break out from the morning high $190.1.

Barring a broad-based crypto rebound, Ethereum would likely come up short of $190 levels on the day.

Failure to move back through to $188 levels would see Ethereum see another day in the red. A fall back through the morning low $182.53 would bring the first major support level at $179.19 into play.

Barring another crypto meltdown, Ethereum should steer clear of sub-$170 levels. The second major support level at $171 would likely limit any downside.

Major Support Level: $179.19

Major Resistance Level: $196.36

23.6% FIB Retracement Level: $257
