Ethereum price is falling and approaching the SMAs

After a pullback, the resistance was breached as price reached a high of $1,875. The selling pressure was severe at the recent high which saw Ether decline to $1,760. The bulls were unrelenting as the price corrected up to $1,850 high again. Today, the bears have taken control of price as they breach the previous low at $1,760. Ethereum is trading at $1,777 at the time of writing.
