Ethereum Price Forecast ETHStarting with the 6-hour chart of ETH/USD, the pair failed to break the previous important support-turned-resistance at $235.00. During the past few sessions, there was a slow and steady decline from the $238.59 swing high, and the price surpassed the $220.00 support.

There was also a break below the 38.2 percent Fibonacci retracement level of the upward move from the $192.51 low to $238.59 high. Currently, Ether’s price is attempting a close below two crucial bullish trendlines at $215.00.

If sellers succeed in pushing the price below $215.00, there could be more losses toward the $200.00 pivot level. To the topside, there is a bearish trendline in place, with resistance at $230.00 on the same chart.

On the downside, the $215.00 support and the 50 percent Fibonacci retracement level of the upward move hold the key for further slides toward the $210.00 and $200.00 levels.

Overall, the bearish recent moves in Ether are indicating an increase in selling pressure below $230.00. To recover, buyers need to keep the price above the $215.00 support.
