Ethereum (ETH/USD) extended its recent pullback early in today’s North American session as the pair depreciated to the 1224.01 area after trading as high as the 1375.91 area during the Asian session, a test of the 50% retracement of the depreciating range from 1477.30 to 1245.00 and the 50-hour simple moving average.
