Next Solid Support Around $600

At the present price, the digital currency is trading at a value last seen in January, 2021. With the current market sentiment, ether may drop all the way to $600 before the market can support an upswing.

The 10-days and 20-days moving averages show that ether is in a downtrend. The RSI indicator at a value of 32 shows that the coin is in the oversold region, so the bulls will contend with the downward pressure. As a result, there has been a remarkable spike in volume in the past 24 hours, but with little impact on price stabilization. So we shall see lower prices for ether in the next few hours and days as the volume spike peters out.

The $1065 support may hold. However, even if this happens, any rebound will be short-term. So if this support breaks down, ether will fall all the way to the $600 zone.
