Analyst say Ethereum price could fall to $1,700 if the current climate prevails

The current wave of volatility is still affecting Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), prices. This is prompting traders to go back and rethink their short-term expectations. The possibility of Bitcoin falling to $2,500 is increased by the fact that Ether fell below $2,900 support on February 17.

TradingView and Cointelegraph Markets Pro data show that Ether dropped to $2,752 intraday after it hovered near the $2900 support level during the morning trading hours.

Crypto Tony said.

“$3,900 is still my most important area and if you flip that, I believe the low is in… If we reject it or fail even to reach it, we will head towards my main goal of $1,700.”

The price is above a “supertrend” resistance level

Market analyst and pseudonymous Twitter User ‘IncomeSharks,’ posted a chart showing that Ether is at a significant resistance zone.

According to the analyst

“Ether right at supertrend resistance. It’s more likely to break upwards than it is to flip bullish because it’s flat. If it flips bullish, I believe $2,900 to $3,000 is next.

Pentoshi stated,

“I will note that there is some local strength in this area since it has held its lows, but overall still lower highs. Trend is down. *IF* these lows break *THEN* *MOST* altcoins turbo nuclear.”
