ETH attempted to break above the $1,860 resistance level over the past 24 hours. Although it was able to break above this barrier earlier in today’s trading session, bears were quick to force the altcoin’s price back below this mark at press time.
Subsequently, ETH returned into the consolidation channel between $1,755 and $1,860. This was a sideways channel that it had traded in for the past two weeks.
