Ethereum Outlook

Ethereum was pushing higher from last week’s lows, at least until the past few hours. In the span of about 30 minutes earlier today, the leading cryptocurrency dropped from $355 or so to $344, marking a small yet notable drop.

This weakness and continued inability to surmount the resistances at $365-375 in the near term is sparking fears of a deeper drop.

Unless Ethereum reclaims $360 in the near future, it is not in bullish short-term standing. The cryptocurrency could drop as low as $280 in the coming weeks.

Despite this weakness in ETH’s price, social media trends purportedly indicate that now is a good buying opportunity.

Momentum Indicators

Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.

Stochastic Oscillator

One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 25.3930. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a sell 8 period(s) ago.

Relative Strength Index (RSI)

The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 43.08. This is not a topping or bottoming area. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a sell 51 period(s) ago.

Commodity Channel Index (CCI)

The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is -122.This is an oversold reading. However, a signal isn’t generated until the indicator crosses above -100. The last signal was a buy 13 period(s) ago.

MACD

The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator (MACD) gives signals when it crosses its 9 period signal line. The last signal was a sell 2 period(s) ago.
