The market may resume upward if the current support holds

Ethereum (Ether, ETH) declines after buyers fail to convincingly break the $2,000 overhead resistance. The bulls broke the overhead resistance twice but could not sustain the bullish momentum.

Ethereum Price Long-Term Analysis: Bullish 

In the first breakdown, Ether plunged to a low of $1,780. The bulls promptly bought the dips as the biggest altcoin rallied to a $1,975 high. Unfortunately, the upward move was restricted at that level. 

After three unsuccessful attempts at the minor resistance, the selling pressure resumed. Ether fell to the previous low at $1,775. After the recent fall, the candlesticks are showing long tails. The candlesticks with long tails indicate there is strong buying pressure at a lower price level. Ether fell to $1,775 support and pulled back. The market may resume upward if the current support holds. Otherwise, the downtrend will resume.
