Ethereum Price Analysis
The crypto markets may be shaky, but that’s just about it. Fundamentals and other on-chain developments are bullish. Of the many projects whose tokens are depreciating as analysts root for their recovery, Ethereum (ETH) is among them. The platform promotes the original intrinsic values of blockchain, namely decentralization and transparency.
Meanwhile, what creators have on the project’s road map is an assurance that the network is committed to being a preferred launching pad where projects can securely launch their dApps or even crowdfund. After all, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is flexible, executing their mandate while not trying to snuff innovation.
Perhaps in line with this development, Blockchain.com acquired Slock, a German startup and among the first developers of Ethereum. The goal of this merger is to work towards bolstering security and solve existing interoperability issues.
At the time of writing, Ethereum (ETH) is down 3.7 percent. Even though under pressure, ETH is nonetheless oscillating within a $60 trade range. Despite liquidation pressure, ETH bulls are in control.
As a result, there is an opportunity for aggressive traders to pick up entries in smaller time frames. However, this condition is valid if ETH trades above $230. The level is immediate support, flashing with the 50 percent Fibonacci retracement level of May trade range.
Other than this, notice that ETH is below the middle Bollinger Band (BB). The flexible support was reliable, and this breach is significant for bears. Should bulls fail to recover and prices close below this mark, then the three-bar bear reversal pattern of May 30th will be valid.
In that case, prices could fall to $230, providing an opportunity for aggressive traders to enter at a discount. Any close below $230 will invalidate this bullish outlook as ETH correct back to $190 zone in a typical retest.
From above May 30th, the candlestick is a reference. It has high trading volumes of 410k against 192k average. For trend continuation, any rally above $300 ought to be with high participation exceeding 410k. Conversely, any meltdown below $230 with high trading volume nullifies this trade plan.
