Technical outlook

Ethereum fell below the 50-day SMA for the first time since early January and the RSI indicator on the daily chart is falling toward the 40 mark, showing the bearish momentum is intact. On the downside, $200 (psychological level/Fibonacci 61.8% retracement of the mid-January-mid-February rally) aligns as a critical support. With a daily close below that level, the pair could target $180 (100-day SMA/200-day SMA).

Near-term resistances, on the other hand, could be seen at $225 (50-day SMA), $235 (Fibonacci 38.2% retracement of the mid-January-mid-February rally) and $240 (20-day SMA).
