Ether: Bullish Reversal Seen Above $3,100
ETHUSD is now moving into a mildly bullish channel with the price trading above the $3,200 handle in the European trading session today.
We saw last week that the bullish move was invalidated above the $3,500 handle, and this week, we are looking at the level of $3,400. If ETH manages to cross and remain above these levels, then we can see $3,500 and $3,600 next week.
Ethereum is now slowly recovering against the US dollar, and we can see the formation of an ascending contraction triangle which means that the prices are due to break out upwards.
ETHUSD is now facing its immediate resistance levels of $3,337 and $3,417, after which we will see a linear progression towards $3,600.
The key support levels to watch are $3,175 and $3,153, and the prices of ETHUSD need to remain above these levels for the bullish trend to continue.
ETH has lost -4.00% with a price change of -133.99$ in the past 24hrs, and has a trading volume of 22.874 billion USD.
We can see a 8.29% decrease in the total trading volume in the last 24 hrs, which appears to be normal.
The Week Ahead
Last week, we saw Ethereum decline from its highs of $3,579 to the low of $3,143, but now we can see that the prices have entered into a consolidation phase above $3,200.
If the price of ETHUSD remains above $3,200, we may see a linear progression towards the level of $3,400 and $3,500 this week.
The immediate short-term outlook for Ether has turned mildly BULLISH; the medium-term outlook has turned neutral; and the long-term outlook for Ether is NEUTRAL in present market conditions.
This week, Ether is expected to move in a range between $3,200 and $3,400, and next week, Ether is expected to enter into a consolidation phase above the level of $3,400.
We can see that the number of active Ethereum addresses are increasing, and it also points to an increase in the price of ETH next week.
The simple moving average (14-day) of the active receiving addresses also suggests that more buyers are now coming back into the markets, which has led to an increase in the number of Ethereum transactions.
