Ethereum price finds a foothold
Ethereum price took a 20% nosedive after rising to a new all-time high of nearly $4,400 on May 12. Investors seem to have rushed to exchanges to buy ETH at a discount as prices quickly, reclaiming the 50 four-hour simple moving average (SMA) at $3,788 as support.
Although the recent price jump looks promising, only a decisive 4-hour candlestick close above $3,788 can lead to an upswing toward the next supply level at $4,179.
If the buyers manage to maintain the bullish momentum, a 5% upswing could develop pushing Ethereum price back to the recent all-time high.

A failure to stay above the 50 four-hour SMA will spell trouble for Ethereum price. The downswing could trigger a 6% sell-off to the immediate demand barrier that ranges from $3,355 to $3,584, which coincides with the 100 four-hour SMA.
