Ethereum ETH/USD Forecast Chart

The pair closed below former critical support at $8.00, which may further put pressure on buyers in the short term. When we have a look at the 4-hours chart of ETH/USD, there is a major support break visible.

A monster consolidation channel pattern was formed on the chart, as the price traded inside it for more than two days. Finally, sellers had an upper hand, as the price broke the channel support area and traded lower.

There is also a H4 close below the $8.00 support, suggesting that it is a real break. The pair even retested the broken support once, but failed to close above it.

It looks like the ETH/USD pair is again forming a downtrend, and may decline further. The recent low of $7.71 is producing a slight recovery, but it may not last long.
