Ethereum’s technical picture
On the daily charts, the initial support is created by psychological $180.00. Once it is out of the way, the sell-off is likely to gain traction with the next focus on the middle line of the Bollinger Band at $178.00. This barrier is likely to slow down the bears; however, if it is broken, the descending trendline at $172.00 will come into view. This trend line goes down from September 19 high at $224.68. It had served as a strong resistance until it was broken on October 26. The next bearish target awaits at $170.00.

However, a stronger barrier is seen at $190.00 with SMA100 located on the approach to this barrier. We will need to see a sustainable move above this handle for the extended recovery towards psychological $200.00.
