Ethereum: USD/ETH (ETH=) Price Turns Down Sharply, Further Correction Possible
For a brief stint, ETH became one of the most active assets, and also the basis for rallies in smaller altcoins. ETH is the second most liquid asset after BTC, and saw a significant rise in trading activity in the first months of 2020.
But after weeks of rallying, Ethereum price also shows signs of fatigue. Predictions now envision a temporary dip across the board, with ETH not being an exception.
On Thursday, ETH stabilized around $227.86, after a rapid slide at the start of the new week. ETH looks like entering the downward leg of its second rally in the past 12 months, where prices got near $300, and appreciated against BTC. ETH trading volumes peaked above $28 billion in 24 hours, after lagging for months.
Altcoins remain extremely volatile, losing more than 20% and more after their recent rally. Ethereum price for now has lost only 11% on a weekly basis, but has followed the overall trend.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Upwards.
