Ethereum might resume the downtrend

Ethereum (ETH) price analysis. October 8, 2020. Ether is on a downward move because the biggest altcoin fails to rebound above the $350 support.

Ethereum price long-term analysis: bearish

The breaking of the $350 support signals the resumption of the downtrend. Similarly, if buyers succeed in pushing the price back above $350 high, the upside momentum will resume. In the meantime, ETH has fallen to  $335 low and it is capable of further decline on the downside. 

After the last break down, the price was corrected upward to a range-bound movement between $335 and $343. The crypto is now trading at $339 at the time of writing. On the downside, the coin will drop to $320 low if the current support cracks. Conversely, if the price breaks out at $343, a rally above $350 is possible. Ethereum will have another chance of rising to the previous highs. At the moment, the biggest altcoin is heading downward except the $320 support holds.
