The Price of Ethereum has Dropped
Ethereum has struggled to break through the $2,700 resistance level. ETH reached a high near $2,700 before beginning a new decline. The price fell sharply below $2,620 and $2,550.
The bears even drove the price down below $2,500 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The price has formed a low near $2,422, and it is now consolidating losses. On the upside, an initial resistance level is seen near $2,485 USD.

The first significant resistance is located near the $2,565 level. It is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $2,703 swing high to the $2,422 low. The primary breakout zone is now near $2,650 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
A close above $2,650 could pave the way for a significant increase. In the scenario described, the price of ether could rise to the $2,700 resistance level.
More ETH Losses?
