Ethereum Primed to See Further Short-Term Losses Toward $300

Ethereum Primed to See Further Short-Term Losses Toward $300

Advertisment
  • Ethereum has dropped in tandem with Bitcoin over the past few days.
  • The leading cryptocurrency fell as low as $330 while BTC slipped to $10,400.
  • While Ethereum has since recovered from those lows to $345, the coin is expected to resume its move lower.
  • Analysts currently see the cryptocurrency moving towards the $300 region.
  • While this short-term drop is expected, investors are optimistic because Ethereum is forming a medium-term falling wedge.
  • A falling wedge is a textbook bullish pattern often seen in the middle of uptrends.

Ethereum Could See Short-Term Downside Towards $300

The chart also shows that ETH is forming a falling wedge, which is a textbook technical pattern often seen prior to upward breakouts.
Michael Van De Poppe, a crypto analyst and a trader at the Amsterdam Stock Exchange, recently shared the chart below. Attached to the chart was a comment that Ethereum is prepared to slide towards 5, then likely even lower:

Should the falling wedge play out, once Ethereum reaches the 0 region, it will proceed to bounce back towards its highs.

He’s not the only one that expects a move towards 0, then potentially lower.

“Looks way more bearish SHORT term I 100% will go all in if this is given. It is my bullish invalidation point and thus optimal entry. More blood yet to come imo. Buy lower grey box or buy LH reclaim flip to support.”

One crypto analyst, the head of technical analysis at Blockfyre, recently shared the chart below with the following comment:

Ethereum is primed to move towards the 0 in the near term, a number of analysts have recently said. They note the cryptocurrency’s inability to move higher in the near term as ETH faces resistances in the 0-375 range.
“$ETH #ETHEREUM Further downwards momentum to expect here. The crucial area that I’ll be interested in is 0-280. Since a while, actually.” 
As the first chart in this article shows, once Ethereum reaches the 0 region, it will be trading two pivotal technical supports: 1) the high of the February rally at 0, and 2) a long-term moving average that has acted as support and resistance over the past few years.

Wait on the Bounce

While Van De Poppe thinks ETH will move lower after testing 0, the first trader mentioned expects a bounce, as do others.
