Earlier, analyst Justin Bennett predicted a possible 45% drop in ETH. In his opinion, the asset is testing the “neckline” within the “head and shoulders” pattern. According to Bennett, if Ethereum falls below the current support level, we should expect the rate of $800.

At the moment, ETH is trading at $1361, the rate rose by 3,5% in 24 hours. The capitalization of the asset is $164 billion.
