Buyers previously pushed the altcoin into the resistance zone, but failed to continue the bullish momentum. Consequently, the bulls were overwhelmed by the bears as the market continued its downward movement. If the selling pressure continues, Ether will fall to the lows of $3,280. On the daily chart, if the price falls to the low of $3,280, the altcoin will find support above the 50-day line SMA. The uptrend will continue if the 50-day line SMA holds. However, if the price falls below the 50-day line SMA, the downtrend will resume.
