Ethereum’s recent fall was a general breakdown in the cryptocurrency market. The bears broke below the price range of $236 and $244. The coin fell to $228 low as the price corrected above $232 high.
Presently, the market is consolidating above $232 support but the price action is indicating a bullish signal. When price breaks below the EMAs, a downward move is expected. A downward move to $224 support will ignite the price action of July 5.
On July 5, Ether had earlier fallen to $224 support where the coin made a strong bounce. This move catapulted the coin to reach a high of $248. Understandably, the price action can repeat itself if the market falls again to that level. Technically, the market respects the historical price level. In the meantime, price is consolidating above $232 support.
