Ethereum Price Turns Red

In the past few sessions, there was a strong decline in Ethereum below $ 400 against the US Dollar. ETH price even broke the $ 350 support level and it dragged bitcoin lower below $ 10,200.

The decline was such that ether price even broke the $ 320 support and settled well below the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). It traded close to the $ 300 support and a new multi-week low is formed near the $ 309 level.

There is also a crucial bearish trend line forming with resistance near $ 340 on the 4-hours chart of ETH/USD. The next major resistance is near the $ 350 level, followed by the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $ 400 swing high to $ 309 low at $ 355.
