The moving average convergence divergence (MACD) is making a crossover to the downside. A strong candle could switch it back on the upper side.
Ethereum Technical Analysis
Ethereum has lost most of the gains acquired the first two days of the week. A price rejection at the $180 level forced the price down to $175.
