ETH continues in the bearish trend in the short-term outlook. 

The opening 1-hour candle was bullish at $279.39 and with bullish momentum increased, the cryptocurrency went up to $291.34 in the supply area.

Exhaustion of the bullish momentum is seen with wicks in the candles at $286.00 which implies the bears' gradual return, coupled with the bearish engulfing candle formed at this point. Moreover, the arc or cup formation suggests that a downward journey in price may occur in the short-term.

The stochastic oscillator is in the overbought region at 76 % and its signal points down which implies downward movement in the price of the cryptocurrency.
