ETH Technical Analysis

The ETH price displays a bullish failure to exceed the $1775 resistance level leading to a 17% drop to the $1450 demand zone at the 50% Fibonacci level. However, the buyers struggle to raise the price back despite multiple successful attempts in the last few months. As mentioned in our previous article, the price action displays a head and shoulder pattern possibility due to the recent bear cycle. Currently, the prices struggle to restart the bull cycle due to the increased selling pressure evident by the spike in trading volume. If the bearish momentum increases near $1450, the ETH prices will drop below the 50% Fibonacci level, bringing a selling opportunity for the sideline traders. They can expect the fallout rally to reach the 78.60% Fibonacci level at $1126, accounting for a 22% drop. However, a bullish reversal in Ethereum prices from the $1450 support zone will start a bull cycle crossing the psychological mark of $1500 to test $1775.
