Ethereum Bears Roar As Price Struggles; Here Is Why Bulls Must Defend $1,000

  •  ETH’s price reclaims its demand zone of $1,200 as price bounces to a region of $1,250 despite market turmoil. 
  •  ETH’s price continues to show strength after a bearish downtrend with the market’s current state, as things look uncertain for most traders and investors. 
  • ETH’s price bounces from a low of $1,100 on the daily timeframes as the price aims for a recovery toward the 50 Exponential Moving Average (EMA)

In the last two days, the crypto market has seen some drastic shift in sentiment, with Ethereum (ETH) and the price of other altcoins battling for survival after the news that Binance would not be taking over FTX after conducting due diligence. Previous weeks saw the price of Ethereum (ETH) perform well, rallying from a low of $1,300 to a high of $1,680. Most altcoins trend higher as many produced gains of over 200%, including DOGE rallying from a region of $0.55 to a high of $0.15, with many hoping for more recovery bounce. Still, these expectations were cut short by the uncertainty surrounding the crypto market, leading to much fear about where the market is headed. (Data from Binance)

Ethereum (ETH) Price Analysis On The Weekly Chart

The past few days have been filled with so much turbulence in the crypto space as many altcoins have struggled to show strength after losing their key support holding off price decline.

The current uncertainty surrounding the market has resulted in reluctance on the part of traders and investors to make altcoin purchases, as there is no assurance if they would be heading up any time soon.

The news of Binance rescuing the situation by taking over FTX led to so much tension as the crypto space remains unsettled, leading to most altcoins suffering in price, including the price of ETH. 

The price of ETH saw its price decline to a weekly low of $1,100 before bouncing off this region, showing some great strength to a region of $1,300 as the price aims to break higher. The price of ETH needs to rally to a region of $1,450, acting as a demand zone to remain safe from sell-off.

The price of ETH remains considerably strong in the daily timeframe as the price trades above $1,200 support after bouncing off from the region of $1,100, which saw ETH losing its demand zone to the bears. 

If the price of ETH breaks above $1,500, we could see more rallies for ETH price; a break below a region of $1,100 would lead to more sell-offs for ETH. 

Daily resistance for the ETH price – $1,500.

Biggest Movers: LTC, ATOM Extend Declines, Hitting 10-Day Lows 

Litecoin fell for a third consecutive session on Thursday, as the token continued to move away from recent highs. Cryptocurrencies have been mostly lower in recent days, as traders continue to fear a global recession. Cosmos also remained in the red during today’s session.

Litecoin (LTC)

Litecoin (LTC) dropped to a ten-day low on Thursday, with the token falling for a third straight session.

Following a high of $79.20 on Wednesday, LTC/USD moved to a low of $74.82 earlier in the day’s session.

As a result of this, the token fell to its lowest point since November 29, when prices hit a bottom of $73.39.

LTC/USD – Daily Chart

Looking at the chart, it appears that litecoin bears are hoping to push prices towards a floor at $73.00.

This seems a possibility, especially with the 14-day relative strength index (RSI) fast approaching a floor of its own.

The index is currently tracking at 57.10, and seems to be moving towards a support point of 53.00.

Cosmos (ATOM)

Another notable token on Thursday has been cosmos (ATOM), which fell to a ten-day low earlier in the day.

ATOM/USD fell to a bottom of $9.52 on Thursday, before bulls reentered the market and bought the recent dip.

Today’s bottom saw cosmos trade at its lowest level since November 28, which was the last time the token hit its floor at $9.45.

ATOM/USD – Daily Chart

As of writing, ATOM has mostly rebounded, and is currently trading at the $9.71 level.

In addition to this, the RSI has bounced from a floor of its own at 39.50, and is currently tracking at 41.40.

Should momentum continue in an upward direction, ATOM bulls will likely target a move above the $10.00 mark.

Bitcoin, Ethereum Technical Analysis: BTC Nears 10-Day Low, As Bears Regain Market Sentiment

Bitcoin continued to slip on Thursday, with the coin remaining close to its lowest level since the end of November. Momentum in cryptocurrency markets has shifted in recent days, with sentiment currently bearish. Ethereum was also lower, with the token dropping towards $1,200.

Bitcoin

Bitcoin (BTC) remained near a one-week low on Thursday, as cryptocurrencies continued to trade in the red.

BTC/USD slipped to a bottom of $16,750.56 earlier in the day, less than 24 hours after trading at a high of $17,061.48.

The move saw the world’s largest cryptocurrency move closer to a recent support point of $16,700.

BTC/USD – Daily Chart

After failing to break out of a ceiling at the 50.00 level earlier in the week, the 14-day relative strength index (RSI) is now tracking at 45.50.

Should price strength continue to plummet, the next visible point of support seems to be at the 43.00 mark.

Bears in the market will be hoping that this floor is not only hit, but broken, which could trigger a move below $16,000.

Ethereum

Like bitcoin, ethereum (ETH) also edged lower in today’s session, with prices falling for a second straight day.

Following a high of $1,252.30 on Wednesday, ETH/USD dived to a low of $1,224.45 earlier in the day.

Today’s drop in price pushed ethereum below a recent support point at the $1,230 level, with prices hitting a nine-day low as a result.

ETH/USD – Daily Chart

Looking at the chart, the 10-day (red) moving average remains high, which some see as a signal that a bullish reversal could still be on the cards.

Despite this, momentum seems bearish, with the RSI tracking at 46.72, which is its lowest point since November 29.

The index now appears to be heading towards a support point at the 45.00 level.
