Ethereum Analysis: Has ETH Found Short-Term Support at $500?

Ethereum Analysis: Has ETH Found Short-Term Support at $500?

Nick Cawley, Strategist

Ethereum Analysis and Talking Points

- Recent rally may have further upside momentum but charts remain negative.

- Retail trade data show traders remain heavily long ETH.

IG Client Sentimentshows how clients are currently positioned in a wide range of cryptocurrencies and how positioning has changed over the last week – and positioning continues to look highly stretched. ETH positioning shows retail are 92.5% net-long and increased long-exposure over the last week. A combination of positioning and recent changes gives us a strong Ether bearish contrarian trading bias.

Ethereum’s Recovery Continues from a Low Base

The second-largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization, Ethereum, has pulled back from the recent abyss and is back above a noted technical chart-level at $497. This December spike low was made just before the sharp rally to ETH’s all-time high at $1,420 made on January 14. A strong break lower could see last week’s $450 level taken out opening the way to the support zone between $397 and $359. For the recent rally to continue, the February 6 low at $568 needs to be re-broken which would then leave the 50- and 200-day moving averages at $630 and $662 respectively as the next levels of resistance ahead of 61.8% Fibonacci retracement at $669.

While the overall trend remains negative, an extension of the current rally cannot be ruled out and may provide holders an opportunity to lighten positions.
