On June 11 and 12, the Ethereum price reached slightly higher highs near $250. During this time, the RSI generated successively lower values. This is known as bearish divergence and often precedes price decreases.
However, it is not very significant in value and is occurring only in short-term time-frames.
The daily moving averages give a bearish outlook.
A bearish cross between the 10- and 20- day MAs occurred on June 7. This is often an indication that a downtrend has begun. Since then, the ETH price has failed to move past any of the MAs. At the time of writing, current prices are above the 10-day MA. However, we have not yet had a close above it.
The use of these indicators makes it likely that the Ethereum price (ETH) is in a downtrend. While breakouts are still possible, they would be short-term increases inside a long-term downtrend.
