ETH Ether price versus US Dollar Chart

No doubt, the risk to downside is a lot of more looking at the hourly chart. And, if we drop on the 4-hours chart of ETH/USD, then there is a monster descending channel formed.

The highlighted channel is slowly and steadily taking the pair down, acting as a support as well as resistance. If there is a break of the channel in the short term, then depending on direction there can be a nasty move. If there is a breakdown, the price can test $10.00, otherwise a recovery may start in ETH/USD.
