Ethereum comes face to face with acute resistance stifling recovery after the waterfall drop – Confluence Detector

  • Ethereum trends 0.27% lower on Wednesday: A setback to the bulls who hoped to push ETH/USD above $140.
  • The confluence detector tool shows a lack of strong support levels for ETH/USD in the coming sessions.

Ethereum has lost 0.27% on the day after correcting lower from $137.17 to $135.35. The retracement is a significant setback to the bulls who were psychologically prepared to push the price above $140. Moreover, the confluence detector tool shows a lack of strong support levels for ETH/USD in the coming sessions. On the contrary, the trip towards the highs traded last week around $167 will be an uphill task considering the strong resistance levels.
