The world's second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap has been consolidating to the downside over the past few days, as most altcoins have been doing lately. As mentioned last week, Ethereum was on a clear consolidation path during mid-November. However, the overall market has dipped due to Bitcoin's huge move to the downside.
