A bearish sweep over the weekend left the cryptocurrency market in a lurch as several of the top coins witnessed massive slashes on their market caps. Bitcoin, Ethereum, and the rest of the market all suffered double-digit falls in the last week with some of the more significant action coming from the altcoins.
Ethereum’s earlier upswing had resulted in a large influx of investors with a majority of them still HODLing through the price crunch. At the time of writing, Ethereum was trading for $2019 at a market cap of $234.01 billion. The previous week had pegged the cryptocurrency’s value down by 21 percent as the daily trading volume capitulated at $28.53 billion.
Ethereum 1 hour:
The hourly charts had bad news for Ethereum as immediate support was broken on June 21. As of now, the immediate support and resistance clocked in at $1997 and $2638.3 respectively. Despite the dip, proponents of the cryptocurrency have been clamoring for more people to enter the Ethereum ecosystem.
A majority of the indicators in the following technical analysis pointed to a bearish signal weakening on the threshold. The Parabolic SAR was above the price of candles which was a sign of the bear’s hold on the market. Although the RSI had fallen below the oversold zone, the following capitulation was a positive sign for the investors. Only the Chaikin Money Flow indicator blinked green for Ethereum as it’s crossed the zero line into bullish territory.
Ethereum 1 day:
Daily charts for Ethereum painted a bearish picture of Ethereum with a break in its 60-day price support. The current price support stands at $1997 with a hold missing in the immediate vicinity. Ethereum’s current price behavior is in tandem with the rest of the cryptocurrency market as billions have been wiped off the market.
The long-term RSI was heading towards the oversold zone as the number of users selling ETH overtook those buying into the market. According to the Parabolic SAR, Ethereum was heading for some more bearish tantrums in the near future. Unlike the hourly charts, the CMF was not forgiving in the long run. The CMF had fallen below the zero line which signified that the capital leaving the ETH market was higher than the influx.
