Ethereum (ETH) Price Analysis Feb 6, 2020

On February 4, Ethereum (ETH) fell to the low of $188 and rebounded. The bulls break the resistance at $197 and rally above $200. This will be the first time the cryptocurrency will be trading above $200 since September. In retrospect, Ether has earlier been battling with a downward correction since August 2019. Previously, the coin was fluctuating between $157 and $173 before the $173 resistance was broken.

This brings to an end the earlier downward correction. Meanwhile, the bulls are above the $200 price level pushing the price higher. The pair is likely to reach the $220 resistance if the current momentum is sustained. Alternatively, if the bulls fail to sustain the price above $200, ETH may drop to a low of $197. However, if the selling pressure extends to the low of $173, it will signify negatively about the coin.
