Ethereum: USD/ETH (ETH=) Significant Movement Is Expected
Ethereum holders have already taken a beating since the ICO boom helped bring the price per ETH to as much as $1,400 each. The fall from grace represents an over 85% drop from the previous all-time high, and some skeptics suggest that some altcoins may never again reach their all-time highs – even if Bitcoin were to reach $100,000.
The sentiment surrounding Ethereum and other major cap altcoins like Ripple, have a powerful spillover effect on the rest of the market. These alts can even drag Bitcoin down with them during exceptionally bearish movements that impact the entire crypto market.
And while signs a bottom is approaching cannot be denied, most are looking toward either a double bottom or some other sort of event that wipes out the altcoin space entirely. The same crypto analyst who believes another 22% drop in Ethereum is due, also believes that “real alt capitulation” hasn’t yet begun, but will in just a matter of two more weeks from now.

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.
One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 63.9596. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a buy 10 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 36.12. 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 buy 3 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 -60. This is not a topping or bottoming area. The last signal was a buy 3 period(s) ago.
The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator (MACD) gives signals when it crosses its 9 period signal line. The last signal was a sell 7 period(s) ago.
