Ethereum Price: Trends and Highlights for August 7
- ETH/BTC is possibly trading inside a descending channel.
- There is support at ₿0.017
- Short-term moving averages have made a bearish cross.
- The RSI has broken down from a significant trend line.
A look at the six-hour time-frame shows that the Ethereum price has been following a descending resistance line since July 8.
Since there is no clearly visible support line, we have drawn one parallel to the resistance line, which gives us a descending parallel channel.
The second possibility is that the support line is less steep in slope, and the Ethereum price is trading inside a descending wedge instead.
Since none of the support lines are validated, we will assume the first scenario in the rest of the analysis.
Staying within the same time-frame, a look at the moving averages supports a continuing decrease towards the support line.
A bearish cross between the 10- and 20-period MAs occurred on July 30.
This coincided with the price touching the resistance line.
Since then, the Ethereum price has been decreasing, facing very close resistance from the 10-period MA.

Signs Of Weakness?
A look at the daily RSI shows that the price has been generating bullish divergence since June 24.
However, the upward sloping trend line of the divergence was broken on August 5.
This can be considered a bearish sign, supporting further price decreases.
If the Ethereum price continues to decrease, the closest support area is outlined below.
It is found at ₿0.017.
This area coincides with the support line of the descending channel outlined in the first section.
Another reason that we believe the price will decrease is the horizontal support line at ₿0.025.
It has provided support to the Ethereum price since December 2017, for roughly one and a half years.
Since it finally broke down, we do not believe the price will immediately increase above it.
Whenever the price begins another upward move, the previous support line should provide very strong resistance.
