Ethereum candlesticks are forming a descending triangle for the price trend as the downward trend line was started from $465 to $225 is now approaching the current support set at $182. Therefore, a bearish momentum might be noticeable from the Ethereum charts.

On the daily charts, the SMA 100 line is below the SMA 200 which indicates the path of least resistance is in the downward direction. Thus, a bearish rally towards the lower level is likely possible as the gap between the two MAs widened.
