Ethereum Elliott Wave Analysis: Triangle Pattern Shows 5th Wave Rise

Ethereum Elliott Wave Analysis: Triangle Pattern Shows 5th Wave Rise

Ethereum Elliott Wave Analysis Talking Points:

- Recent Ethereum price corrections allow us to focus on the technical patterns forming in the charts

-Ethereum appears to have carved an Elliott Wave triangle in the fourth position of a five wave impulse

-Get started learning about trading Ethereum using the Elliott Wave with our beginner and advanced Elliott Wave trading guide.

The Elliott Wave model on Ethereum (ETH) appears to have finished a triangle pattern. The triangle pattern is one that helps me start an Elliott Wave count because it appears only in certain areas of the Elliott Wave sequence.

In the case for Ethereum, the exponential rise then December 2017 correction hints the triangle is in the fourth wave position of an impulse wave. That essentially means the triangle pattern is interrupting the uptrend.

Since the triangle appears to be in the fourth wave of a five wave impulse that implies this current rise is a fifth wave. After this wave finishes, a correction back into the triangle’s price territory is not out of the question.

Applying some fifth wave measuring techniques, wave relationships begin forming near $1038. For example, $1038 is the Ethereum price chart level where wave 5 is 61.8% the length of waves 1-3. Additionally, there is channel resistance forming near $1075. The channel is created by drawing a trend line at the end of waves two and four, duplicating that line, and place it at the top of wave three.

Remember, these levels are areas of wave relationships. We are not suggesting prices have to stop at these levels nor are we implying that price will reach these levels. These are levels that can provide estimates for fifth waves in an impulse wave sequence. If our analysis of the waveform is correct, then we are anticipating Ethereum to slow its ascent near $1038 to $1075.
