Ether’s Demise to $2,032.59
If the sentiments of the investors do not change, then the price of Ether may continue plunging. The investors with the negative sentiments may continue pressuring the bulls and keep pushing them out of the competition.
The first attempt the bears may make would be to push Ether below the $3,000 per ETH mark. Once ETH falls below the $3k mark, the bullish investors would automatically start taking psychological pressure.
Once the attempt made by the bears is successful, they may go for another selling spree. This time, the bears may attempt to pull the price of Ether all the way down to $2,763.08 per ETH.
The $2,763.08 is currently the first strong support benchmark for Ether, where the bulls may try and show off their buying power. However, if the bulls fail to demonstrate their buying strength, then the bears may continue with their selling spree.
In a matter of time, the bears may succeed in pulling the price of Ether down to $2,428.67 per ETH, which would be the second strong support mark.
Once the second support mark is hit, the ratio of bears versus the bulls may lean even more in favor of the bears. As the number of bearish investors grows versus the bullish investors, more Ether may start getting flushed out. Subsequently, Ether may end up hitting its third strong support mark ($2,032.59).
