Daily chart for ETH/USDT (Source: TradingView)

ETH’s price has dropped below the key support level at around $1,845 recently. In addition, the altcoin’s price has also dropped below the positive trend line that had been established on its daily chart.

Should ETH’s price close today’s trading session below these two key levels, it will continue to drop to the 20-day EMA line in the next 24-48 hours.

The daily RSI line has crossed below the daily RSI SMA line in the last 24 hours, which suggests that ETH’s price will drop to the 20-day EMA line in the next 24-48 hours and will potentially drop to the next key support level at $1,715.

This bearish thesis will be invalidated if ETH’s price is able to close today’s trading session above $1,845. Should this happen, ETH’s price will rise to the next minor resistance level at $1,911.95.
