Ethereum Price Technical Analysis
Yesterday August 13, the price of Ethereum (ETH) was trading in the bearish trend zone. The crypto’s price was trading below the 12 and the 26-day Exponential Moving Averages (EMAs) after the bulls were unable to break above the $216 resistance level. On July 9, Ethereum price was trading above the EMAs but the bulls met resistance at the $320 price level. As a result, the price went on a downward correction to a low at $198 level. The $200 support level was holding as the bulls made an upward move toward the EMAs.
