Therefore, ETH bulls may wait for an opportunity, while sellers may look for a strong bounce before selling the asset short. Traders will likely find opportunities, but the daily bias remained bearish according to the price chart of the king of altcoins.
Ethereum was forming a bearish divergence on the chart as buyer conviction looked weak
Ethereum continued its downward trend on the daily time frame. The recent lower high of this downtrend was $1778 with an aggressive market reading, or $1898 with a more conservative view. Therefore, these are the levels that ETH bulls need to break through to show that the bulls had some control over the market.
Such a scenario seemed unlikely at the time of writing. The OBV was just above the May lows, but has been trending lower over the past three weeks. The RSI was below the neutral 50 to show bearish momentum. The RSI could form a bearish divergence with the price, highlighted in cyan, if ETH fails to rise above $1778 next week.
The $1750-$1790 area served as support from early April, but was flipped into resistance just a few days ago. A retest of this region could result in a rejection, although short sellers should be wary of taking liquidity in the $1800 area.

They reflected investor sentiment and the argument that ETH is undervalued at press time holds water. Still, buyers should be cautious as the trend was against them and can wait for more favorable winds.
