Ethereum faces downside risk on the daily chart
On the daily chart, Ethereum’s (ETH) price has rallied nearly 50% from January’s lows and formed the swing highs at $3,284.75 on February 10. However, investors lose their patience and retrace lower as a healthy retracement near $2,800. This also coincides with the breaking of the crucial 50-day Simple Moving Average (SMA).
Now, if the selling pressure becomes intensified instead of a simple retracement, the price could drop toward the $2,500 level.
Next, ETH will take out the lows of $2,150 levels last seen in July.
On the flip side, if the price is able to sustain the session’s low then it could jump back to the recent highs of $3,200.
A next upside could be found at 12% upside at the 200-day SMA at $3,600.
