Losses in Ethereum – What to Expect
A decent increase could begin if the ether price clears the $3,450 resistance zone. In this case, the price may rise above the $3,500 zone. The following critical threshold is near the $3,525 level where bears can take a position.
A new drop could begin if Ethereum fails to start a further rise to the $3,420 level. Initial support on the minus side is close to the $3,300 zone. The next significant support is close to $3,250. If $3250 is below support, the price may be lower. In this case, there is a risk of moving to the $3,050 level. It is worth noting that Ethereum is the second-largest cryptocurrency in the world. Its value declined quite sharply after it increased.
