At the time of writing, Ethereum is slipping again on its charts. Last week, the coin lost about 10% of its value. Bears gain strength in the market as buyers leave the market.
The technical outlook for the coin remains bearish with increased selling pressure. The coin will continue to remain unchanged for the next trading session.
The coin has also experienced a sustained sell-off over the past 48 hours. Ethereum fell below its long-term support line at $1,900. The coin has attempted to recover on its own over the past 24 hours, but the bearish price action remains strong at the time of writing. The bears may be exerting pressure to push the coin below $1,700.
A break below the $1,700 price mark would lead to a further 19% drop in ETH. For the bulls to breathe, ETH needs to break the $1,900 price barrier again.
