Ethereum: USD/ETH (ETH=) failed to break upwards through $180
Crypto markets are again turning red, as the price of Ethereum (ETH) and XRP (XRP) see 2% and 3% respective losses for the day. Both assets crashed in tandem over a 30-minute sell-off that also saw Bitcoin (BTC) plummet back to $8,000.
Ethereum’s fall to its current value of $172 comes after the cryptocurrency again failed to break upwards through $180 earlier today. This is the second time that this resistance level has held back the price, following a failed first attempt at the start of October. The cryptocurrency is also 30% down from its September 19 high of $225.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Downwards.
Note: this chart shows extraordinary price action to the downside.
By the way, prices are vulnerable to a correction towards 195.99.
The projected upper bound is: 196.90.
The projected lower bound is: 148.03.

A doji star occurred (where a doji gaps above or below the previous candle). This often signals a reversal with confirmation occurring on the next bar.
A long upper shadow occurred. This is typically a bearish signal (particularly when it occurs near a high price level, at resistance level, or when the security is overbought).
Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.
One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 46.5776. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a sell 12 period(s) ago.
Relative Strength Index (RSI)
The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 42.69. This is not a topping or bottoming area. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a sell 14 period(s) ago.
Commodity Channel Index (CCI)
The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is -34. This is not a topping or bottoming area. The last signal was a buy 6 period(s) ago.
The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator (MACD) gives signals when it crosses its 9 period signal line. The last signal was a sell 10 period(s) ago.
