Assuming, the bears have the upper hand, they will break the $1,400 support. This will cause Ether to fall into a deeper correction. Meanwhile, Ether is making an upward move after its rejection at the $1,700 high. The upside momentum will resume if price breaks level $1,700. Otherwise, the cryptocurrency will be compelled to a range-bound move.
