Free fall in the Ethereum prices – How deep in can it go?

The Ethereum price declined over 10% against the U.S. Dollar at the start of this week, placing fresh lows of 2018. A strong bearishness in the ETH/USD doesn’t seem to halt until the $235 level is met. It’s not just Ethereum, but other cryptocurrencies are also exhibiting a sharp sell-off. Recalling our earlier update on BTC/USD, the market slipped below $6,000 to place a low of $5,858 before pulling back.

One of the reasons behind the bearish sentiment in the crypto market could be a stronger dollar. As we discussed on Aug 14 – Economic Events Brief, the dollar index has placed a new monthly high after violating the Ascending Triangle pattern.
