  • Ethereum recovers to assault $220 resistance twice but a bearish bias still exists.
  • Ethereum still has a ‘buy’ rating following the breakdown from the highs above $300.

Ethereum has in the past few days come under heavy selling pressure. The crypto plunged from levels above $300 and explored how deep the rabbit hole goes under $200. Support established at $190 allowed the bulls to take over control and push for gains above $200.

The second-largest crypto touched $220 hurdle yesterday but dwindling buying pressure resulted in a correction that found balance above the rising trendline aided by the 100 Simple Moving Average (SMA) 15-mins. Meanwhile, the bulls not ready to give up control pushed ETH/USD above $220 on Thursday during the European session.
