Ethereum's technical picture

On the intraday timeframe, ETH/USD is supported by psychological $210, strengthened by the lower line of 4-hour Bollinger Band. Once it is cleared, the sell-off is likely to gain traction with the next focus on $200.00. The next critical support area awaits us at $185-$180.00 support area created by a confluence os SMA200 and the lower line of Bollinger Bands on a daily chart.

On the upside, we will need to see a sustainable move above SMA50 4-hour ($220) and the middle line of 4-hour Bollinger Band ($222) for the upside to gain traction. Once it is out of the way, the next bull's target at $230.00 will come into view.
