Total market capitalization

A rejection at the USD 7,000 resistance zone could lead to a move towards USD 6,800. A move towards USD 6,650, or USD 6,550 could be possible if there are further losses.
The Ethereum price is showing positive signals above USD 170 and is steadily rising. The ETH/USD exchange rate is currently trading at USD 175, and is up by around 2%. The bulls appear to be targeting the USD 178-USD 180 levels in the near future.
The price will likely fall if they don’t extend the current wave beyond USD 178 and USD 180. Nearly USD 170 is the main support and USD 168 are the main threats to the downside.
