ETH/USD is doddering at $198.56 following an adjustment from $200.67 (opening value). An intraday high has been formed at $203.18. Ethereum is facing increased selling activity owing to the strong bearish trend. However, with the prevailing bearish pressure, minor movements downward are anticipated.
