Market Overview

Since our last ETH analysis, we can see that Ethereum continued further lower beneath the support at $220, provided by the .5 Fibonacci Retracement level. It dropped slightly beneath the aforementioned support as it fell further lower until finding support at $217, provided by a downside 1.414 Fibonacci Extension level.

We can see that the market is now battling to remain above this level of support as the buyers continue to defend the $217 area.

Short term prediction: NEUTRAL

The battle at $217 is keeping ETH from turning bearish. Realistically, it would need to drop beneath $200 before a bearish trend is formed, however, a drop and close beneath $217 will put the market in danger of turning bearish.

If the sellers do break beneath $217, the first level of support lies at $210. Beneath this, additional support lies at $206 (downside 1.618 Fib Extension). This level of support is further bolstered by the .618 Fib Retracement at $205. Beneath this, support can be expected at $200, $191, and $183.

On the other hand, if the bulls can break back above $220, the first level of resistance lies at $228. This is followed by resistance at $240, $248, $267, and $271.
