Ethereum is down 5% and it is struggling to stay above $2,000 against the US Dollar. ETH price could decline sharply if there is a break and close below $2,000.

Ethereum is showing bearish signs below the $2,050 and $2,100 levels.
The price is now trading well below the $2,100 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
There was a break below a key contracting triangle with support near $2,110 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via Kraken).
The pair must stay above the $2,000 support to avoid a major decline in the near term.

Ethereum Price Remains At Risk
There was a fresh decline in ethereum from the $2,175 resistance zone, similar to bitcoin. ETH broke many supports near $2,100 and the 100 hourly simple moving average to move into a bearish zone.
There was also a break below a key contracting triangle with support near $2,110 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair traded below the $2,050 support and it tested the $2,000 support. A low is formed near $2,009 and the price is now consolidating losses.

The first key resistance is near the $2,090 and $2,100 levels. The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent dive from the $2,175 high to $2,009 low is also near $2,090. A close above $2,100 might start a decent recovery wave in the near term. The next major resistance is near the $2,175 level.
More Losses in ETH?
If Ethereum fails to recover above $2,050 or $2,100, it could continue to move down. An initial support on the downside is near the $2,010 level.
The first major support is near the $2,000 level. If ether bulls fail to defend the $2,010 and $2,000 support levels, there are chances of a sharp decline. In the stated case, ether bears might aim a test of the $1,850 support level. An intermediate support could be near $1,920.
