As you can see, the decline is due to the fact that the 14-day relative strengths index (RSI), seemed to have collided at 55.40 with a resistance.

It appears, like bitcoin, that bulls chose to close their previous positions to secure profits as the market became more uncertain.

This chart suggests that volatility may have been caused by the 14 day RSI. The index is now at 58.00 and close to 60.00.

Bulls will continue to aim for $1,800. However, in order to achieve this goal, price strength must overcome the upcoming hurdle.
