The price of Ethereum (ETH) has fallen below the 21-day line SMA as the largest altcoin retargets current support.
Long-term analysis of the Ethereum price: bearish
On October 4, buyers tried to push Ether above the 21-day line SMA. The upward momentum continued as the price retested the resistance at $1,400. The cryptocurrency’s price failed to break through the resistance as the altcoin fell back into the range bound zone.
Since September 21, the cryptocurrency value has been fluctuating between $1,220 and $1,400 price levels. The altcoin may fall to a low of $1,000 if sellers break the $1,220 support. Similarly, the largest altcoin will resume its uptrend if the bulls overcome the resistance at $1,400. This will push Ether to regain the previous highs of $1,800 and $2,030.
