Ether could have rallied to the high of $2,900

The price of Ethereum (ETH) is falling as it faces rejection at the $2,200 resistance zone. In the last three days, buyers pushed the Ether price to the previous highs. The Ether price tested the $2,200 resistance level again, but failed to overcome it.

The price level of $2,200 was the previous support from May 10. Ether could have rallied to the high of $2,900 if the resistance level was broken. Nevertheless, the altcoin is falling as it is rejected from its recent high. On the downside, Ether will trade in a range between $1,763 and $2,200 if the current support holds. On the downside, the downtrend will resume if the bears fall below the previous low at $1,763.
