The crypto-verse was undergoing bloodshed as all the coins were drowning deep in red. Ethereum [ETH] and Bitcoin Cash [BCH] were among those coins that did not witness much of a slump. Stellar [XLM] after witnessing a major rise was enduring a slump at the time of writing. Bitcoin [BTC] was once again at $17K as the king coin was dropping by 2.68%.
Ethereum [ETH], at press time, was trading for $540.59 with a 3.58% drop over the course of 24-hours. ETH had surged above $600 multiple times this year, however, the altcoin failed to retain itself in that zone. The second-largest coin endured several downfalls, yet it managed to stay in the second spot with a market cap of $61.96 billion. Over the last seven days, ETH recorded losses of up to 10.23%.
Ethereum [ETH] One Hour Price Chart
The one-hour price chart of ETH had formed two converging triangular lines. The upper trend line was identified by lower highs at $595.3, $577.85 as well as $568.71. This was followed by higher lows at the lower trend line at $527.37 and $537.40. The pattern formed in the above-shown chart was a symmetrical triangle pattern. The pattern was affirmed by the volume that had depreciated over time. The direction of a breakout is uncertain in the aforementioned pattern.
The indicators, however, were taking the side of the bulls. The 50 daily moving average [Blue] was seen resting above the 100 daily moving average [Orange]. A crossover like this insinuates the presence of bulls.

The Awesome Oscillator was in sync with the above-used indicators as it sided the bulls with the formation of green closing bars.
