Ethereum ETH price movement: What to expect?

Cryptocurrency analyst Alex Clay reported that the last Ethereum ETH price breakout to the $176 mark was in fact a “fakeout” driven by an excited and anxious market movement. As predicted by Clay, ETH price fell down, however, unlike the prediction the price moved up as soon as Bitcoin price started moving upwards.

Clay expected Ethereum ETH price to fall further down to the $168 point, however, the price movement had other plans. Cryptocurrency is considered a volatile market despite contrary evidence while Bitcoin correlation with Ethereum seems to be the major reason for the defiant price movement.

However, the strong resistance point at $176.41 seems to be playing out pretty well as a basic indicator chart describes the $176 mark as the strongest resistance point for ETH breakout towards $200.

Whereas, the relative strength index (RSI) stands at the 41.39 mark. If the current price movement persist, ETH can break out to $200, however, if the Bitcoin price falls down again, a price crash is expected to follow.
