- ETH/USD has been recovering after a sharp sell-off on Monday.
- Important resistance is created by psychological $134.00.
Ethereum, the second-largest digital asset with the current market value of $14.4 billion and an average daily trading volume of $11 billion, managed to recover above $131.00 after a sell-off towards $124.17 during early Asian hours. Despite the upside momentum, the coin is still locked in a range.
With just over 4% ETH accounts in the money now, ETH/USD may be vulnerable to further losses unless it breaks above the upper boundary of its short-term channel. As over 500K of ETH addresses have their break-even point around $134.00, Ethereum bulls might find it hard to make their way above this level.
