Ethereum volatility is decreasing together with the price.
- ETH/USD may proceed to the critical support at 180.00.
An average 10-day volatility of ETH/USD dropped to 1.73%, which is close to the historical minimum. This development can be a sign of market indecision, though the asset tends to move sharply after a period of range-bound trading.
Meanwhile, at the time of writing ETH/USD is changing hands at $183.20. down nearly 1.6% in recent 24 hours. The second-largest asset with the current market capitalization of $19.9 billion has been moving in sync with the market, vulnerable to bearish sentiments.
Looking technically, an important support area is created by SMA50 (Simple Moving Average) daily at $180.48. Once it is out of the way, the sell-off is likely to gain traction with the next focus on psychological $180.00 and $178.00 (the lower boundary of the recent consolidation channel).
On the upside, keep an eye on $185.00 strengthened by SMA100 daily. We will need to see a sustainable move above this handle for the upside to gain traction and mitigate the bearish pressure. The next resistance awaits us on approach to $190.00, followed by $194.70 (November 6 high).
