Market Overview

Ethereum started the weekend off pretty well as it managed to rise into the resistance at $250, however, upon reaching this level, the market rolled over and reversed. As it dropped, of fell beneath support at the 2-month-old rising trend line and continued to drop until the cryptocurrency managed to find support at $200 (specifically $198) before bouncing higher again.

More specifically, it fell into support at $190 but quickly recovered and moved higher. It is now attempting to overcome resistance at $205.

Short term prediction: BEARISH

Ethereum cannot be seen as anything other than bearish at the moment. It would need to break back above $227 to be considered as neutral and a further break above $250 could possibly turn it bullish, but that is some distance away.

If the sellers push ETH lower, the first level of support is located at $200. Beneath this, we can expect more support at the $191/$190 level. If the selling pressure continues beneath $190, additional support is located at $183 (.786 Fib Retracement), $181, and $180.

On the other hand, the first level of resistance to break is at $205. Above this, resistance lies at $213, $220, $227, $240, and $250.

The RSI is now beneath the 50 level and has flatlined. If it starts to rise back toward 50, this would be a signal that the selling momentum is starting to fade. It would still need to break above 50 to confirm that the buyers are in charge again.
