The Ethereum price has recently escaped from the descending triangle pattern and the current bearish move might be a retest of the triangle. Since the beginning of 2023, the Eth price has been in an uptrend creating higher highs and higher lows. The annual high is at $2141.54.

If Bulls can push Eth’s price above $1916, there is a higher probability for the price to retest the $2000 level. While on the other hand, if Eth’s price shatters the recent support, it might fall toward the $1711 region which would cause a downfall of roughly 4.95%.
