Ethereum (ETH) ’Death Cross’ About to Appear

Ethereum Chart Hints at Lower Prices

The recent sharp down trend for the second largest cryptocurrency Ethereum looks set to push the 50-day moving average down through the 200-day moving average, a technical set-up known as a bearish- or death-cross. The cross-over is normally confirmed with higher volume – not the case with ETH – and highlights a decline in short-term momentum. While ETH has already fallen by over $1,000 to a current level of $394, the cross-over may indicate that bearish sentiment remains and that lower prices may follow.

ETH is currently respecting its down trend channel from the January 13 high at $1,421 although the token is currently trying to break to the upside. The charts shows that ETH had a false break above the trend line in early March before falling back below trend for the last five weeks.

Bitcoin (BTC) experienced its own 50-/200-day ma cross-over in late March when the token was trading around $7,500 compared to a current level of $6,720.
