Ethereum tested a new low this month as it prepared to move past its crucial support level of $1744. This also meant it could see a price reversal after hitting a new low this month.
As Bitcoin tanked by 5.4% over the last 24 hours, the altcoin market struggled to move out of the bearish zone. Monero’s charts flashed shorting opportunities along with further chances of price fluctuations while on the contrary, Uniswap noted some buy signals of its own.
Ethereum has been on a free-fall lately as it followed Bitcoin’s lead into a steady downtrend. The altcoin can possibly face a reversal given how low the price has fallen, however. In fact, at press time, it had fallen past its support level of $1744.
Chances of a reversal would find concrete footing only with a hike in buying pressure. If the alt’s price does rise from hereon, ETH would encounter resistance at $2035.
The decline in prices has made it difficult for ETH holders to hold on to the asset. The Relative Strength Index emanated strong sell signals because the coin depicted that it had briefly touched the oversold zone in the early hours of 20 July. At press time, the indicator was flashing a downtick, one implying a small drop in buying pressure again. Ethereum’s market weakness was validated by the Average Directional Index as it hovered right above the 20-mark.
The Bollinger Bands pointed towards a period of high volatility as the bands opened up, at the time of writing.
For most altcoins, the price movement had broken off the consolidated phase to trade at their lowest this month.

Bearish pressure in the market was on the rise as the red signal bars on the Awesome Oscillator seemed to gain strength at the time of writing. A bearish crossover was visible on the MACD, a finding underlining the market’s bearishness.
