On May 11, the bears again attempted to break the uptrend by dragging the 2nd-ranked cryptocurrency on CoinMarketCap below the support line of the channel. However, the bulls again bought the dip.
This could have led to short covering by the aggressive bears and follow up buying by the aggressive bulls. This has propped the ETH/USD pair above the 20-day EMA ($196). The downtrend line might offer stiff resistance but if this level is scaled, the up move can retest $227.097.
Conversely, if the pair turns down from the downtrend line, the bears are likely to make another attempt to sink the price below the channel and the recent low of $176.112. If successful, a deeper correction is likely.
