Let’s start with the hourly chart of ETH/USD. Yesterday, the pair failed to correct higher, and declined further below $48. A new weekly low was formed at $46.42 from where the pair started correcting higher.

At the moment, the pair is trading below two bearish trend lines with resistance at $50 and $50.10. As long as the price is below the mentioned resistance levels, there can be additional losses. The $50 resistance area also represents the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level of the last decline from the $53.71 high to $46.42 low.

break and close above $50 is needed if Ether has to overcome the current bearish pressure. On the downside, there is a connecting bullish trend line formed with support at $49. It’s not important, but might help the price in the short term.
