- Ethereum has been struggling to garner any technical strength in the time following its dip below $380
- This is a critical level that has determined its trends in the past, and the break below it is quite bearish
- Where the entire market trends next will likely depend on Bitcoin, but any near-term BTC downside could force ETH below a critical support level
- It is currently trading just a hair above this level, and one analyst is noting that a break below it could lead to a sharp selloff that erases all of its recent gains

The entire crypto market’s near-term outlook hinges largely on that of Bitcoin. Until the benchmark cryptocurrency can gain some momentum, altcoins will likely continue seeing some underperformance.
Ethereum and the entire crypto market have lost their momentum, with many altcoins drifting lower as Bitcoin remains stable around ,400.
From here on out, its price has been drifting lower – being unable to garner any clear momentum in either direction.
Ethereum Struggles Alongside Bitcoin as Selling Pressure Remains Intense
One analyst is now noting that Ethereum’s recent decline has driven it down towards a crucial support level that must be defended.
He believes that downside could be imminent if this region is broken below.
At the time of writing, Ethereum is trading up just under 1% at its current price of 8. This marks a notable decline from its recent highs of 5 set just a few days ago at the peak of its recent upswing.
Analyst: ETH is About to Reach a “Do or Die” Level as Selloff Continues
“ETH / USD: Here we go, major region being retested, previous resistance now looking for it to be maintained as support. This region between 5-0 is one of the most important ranges, without it holding as support we could very quickly head back to the local lows. No panic.”
While sharing his thoughts on where Ethereum might trend next, one analyst explained that the 0-365 region is a critical support for ETH.
He says that a failure for ETH to remain above this level would be quite grim and potentially have dire impacts on its near-term outlook.
Until it breaks its current consolidation phase and rallies higher, its near-term outlook may remain somewhat grim.
