The price of ETH has broken out of the ascending wedge and fell heavily today. It found support at the $1,000 level and it is holding slightly above it currently. If this can provide a decent support to the price, the ETH may go sideways before further down or resume its upcycle.
Traders need to pay extra attention to the price support $1,000 and it may go to $900 level if it is broken. Currently, it seems that it is unlikely to break the support and therefore we expect a significant price recovery for the ETH price after the big dump.
Ethereum price is trading at $1095 at the time of writing.
