Ethereum Price Analysis Chart

The price is currently struggling and following a bearish trend line on the same chart, which is acting as a downside mover for ETH. It looks like as long as the price is below the trend line resistance, it may continue to move down.

I think the price is clearly setting up for a downside move, as there is a bearish pattern forming on a higher timeframe chart like the last 7-day chart of ETH/BTC. A contracting triangle pattern formed (highlighted with yellow color on the chart), which may pave the way for the next move in the short term.
