Ethereum technical outlook

Ethereum broke below the 50-day SMA for the first time since mid-April, suggesting that the outlook turned bearish in the near-term. Moreover, the RSI on the daily chart continues to push lower below 50.

The Fibonacci 23.6% retracement level of the three-month-long rally that started in March could be seen as the next support at $215. Below that level, Ethereum could target $200. On the upside, resistances are located $223 (50-day SMA), $233 (20-day SMA) and $250 (upper limit of the three-week-old horizontal channel).
