Ethereum (ETH) Price Analysis Jan 23, 2020

Undeniably, it is a fact that Ethereum (ETH) has made some bullish gains. Recently, the world’s second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap dropped to a low of $120 in December 2019 during the bear market.

The bulls defended the support in December and gradually moved up to the current price level. On January 19, the bulls reached a high of $176 but could not sustain hold above the current price level. Consequently, ETH fell to a low of $165 and resumed a range-bound movement.

Presently, Ether is fluctuating in a tight range between $160 and $170. On the upside, if the bulls adopt the same momentum from inception, the resistance at $176 will be broken and the price will reach the high of $197. On the downside, if the bears break the low of $160, the cryptocurrency may fall to the low of $140. This will erase the bullish gains and portend negatively for the coin.
