ETH/USD – Etheruem Bears Return Market To September Support
Key Support Levels: $336, $325, $306.
Key Resistance Levels: $364, $380, $390.
Ethereum fell by a steep 10% today as it dropped beneath $364 (2019 High) to about $336. Toward the end of last week, Ethereum had reached the $390 resistance but could not penetrate above there, which led to ETH rolling over.
Luckily, there is strong support at the $336 level that held the market during the early September drops. A daily closing candle beneath here could spell disaster for Ethereum as it could head lower toward $300.
