Ethereum (ETHUSD) Forming 1st Red Weekly Candle in 6 Weeks

Ethereum (ETHUSD) is forming its first red weekly candle in six weeks as profit-taking kicks in after ETHUSD briefly tested the psychologically key 400 whole figure resistance level.

With the current red weekly candle quickly lengthening reversing most gains over the last two weeks, a bearish Island Reversal could be forming.
