Ethereum is in a Make or Break Level
So far, Ethereum (ETH) had a great week. Moreover, it has been able to show consistent gains that have let the cryptocurrency claim a stable position within the $140 region. However, it has been woefully underperforming Bitcoin (BTC) over the past day. It is still blurry if it would soon start a descent as investors transfer capital from altcoins to BTC.
According to some analysts, the current price region Ethereum is trading at is a make or break level for it. Then, one key factor might hint that it would soon break down and post significant near-term losses.
In addition to that, Ethereum is trading up just below 1% at its current price of $143. And this marks a slight climb from its daily lows of $140, which set earlier.
Then, in ETH’s Bitcoin trading pair, the crypto’s price action looks especially lackluster. It is recently trading down more than 5%. This poor performance is mainly due to BTC’s recent price rally. As a result, it led it to push against its key resistance level at $8,000.
Most of the major altcoins, such as Ethereum, usually move in tandem with Bitcoin. However, it looks like this time is different. And investors who transfer their money from altcoins and into Bitcoin might be driving the ongoing rally, wishing to catch the next major rally.
Twitter’s famous crypto analyst Bitcoin Jack stated in a recent tweet that ETH is currently trading at a make or break level. Moreover, the way it trades there could set the tone for how it trends in the weeks and months ahead.
Bitcoin Jack noted, “Make or break for $ETH really.”
Next Movement: Bulls or Bear?
To the chagrin of bull, it does seem like the next major Ethereum movement might favor sellers. And this is due to the crypto further staying trapped beneath a key multi-year resistance level.
Another famous crypto analyst Teddy tweeted, “#ETHEREUM | $ETH: Looking forward to the reaction with diagonal resistance, imposed two years ago. What changed fundamentally? Absolutely nothing…”
He also explained that failure to break in the test might short down to ‘daddy target.’
Moreover, if the trend line would spark another major sell-off, Ethereum might fall to as low as 0.011 BTC. And this marks a massive drop from its current price of 0.017 BTC.
