The price has clearly moved into a bearish zone and could continue to fall short-term to $ 3,700 and $ 3,600. Immediate support is $ 3,660 and the Fib retracement level of 61.8% of the last wave from $ 3,213 down to $ 4,386 high.
If there is a slide under the $ 3,500 support, the price may even fluctuate towards the last low low at $ 3.133. On the upside, there is solid resistance formed close to $ 3,900 and $ 4,000 levels. As long as BTC is trading below $ 4,000, there is a risk of further short-term losses.

If there is a break below $ 114, the price may fall to support levels $ 104 and $ 102. The downside, if the price corrects higher, the previous support near $ 130 and 21 SMA are able to prevent increases.
Overall, the price of Ethereum has moved into a bearish zone and there may appear to be further declines below $ 114 and $ 110 in the short term.

If sellers push the price below the $ 0.3285 support, there may be a sharp decline to the $ 0.3100 level. On the upside, an initial resistance is close to the $ 0.3800 level. A proper closing above the $ 0.3800 level and the 21st SMA are necessary for buyers to gain momentum.

Looking at the 4-hour chart, the price was trading at $ 3.20 and then started a downward correction. There was a fall below the support of $ 2.80 and the simple moving average at 21 (4 hours), and the price moved into a negative zone.
The price was traded below the $ 2.40 level and the 50% Fibra retracement level of the last wave from $ 1.55 down to $ 3.20 up. The current price action is bearish and it seems that the price may continue to fall towards the levels of $ 2.30 and $ 2.20.
Furthermore, there is an uptrend line with $ 2.20 support on the same chart. It coincides with the Fib retracement level of 61.8% of the last wave, from $ 1.55 downwards to $ 3.20 at the top.
Therefore, if the price continues to fall, there may be a decent buying interest near the $ 2.20 level in the short term.
Overall, the EOS price is lowering with a bearish tone below $ 2.80, but the $ 2.20 support could perhaps serve as short-term support.
The best earnings
Over the past 7 days, despite recent downward movements, some small capitalization altcoins have gained more than 80%, including XET, PLC, GTC, BOX and PCL (trading volume above $ 50K). Of these, XET met around 420% and PLC gained almost 130%.
To sum up, the price of the bitcoin has clearly reached the highest level near the $ 4,380 level and has started a big downward move. If BTC / USD extends the current decline below the $ 3.500 support, further losses may occur in the coming days. Likewise, the major altcoins such as Ethereum, EOS, Stellar, XRP, BCHSV, BCH, ADA, NEO, ZRX and XMR are currently at risk of further losses if sellers remain in stock.
