18.04 - 25.04 price analysis and forecast for new week ETH / USD

(Figure 1. ETH / USD 4H chart)

Last week, Ethereum began trading at $2,315. This was followed by a substantial decline, similar to bitcoin, to the 2,050 -2,150 USD zone. At the beginning of the week, the market bulls tried to push the price up, but the market bears were not there yet, and there was a new decline in the support area. However, this was followed by the upward pressure of the bulls, and a new all-time high at $2,645 was established.  After reaching a new high, there was a sudden decline back to a vital support area. Towards the end of last week, the bulls showed their power again, and the price went up, but no new high was formed. At the time of writing, Ethereum is trading at $2,462, below the only resistance level.

Moving Averages

250MA (green); 50MA (blue); 21MA (orange). In the case of a moving average strategy, the intersections of the lines are generally considered, and that the lines of the moving average are in the right relationship with each other.
Example: A solid bullish market trend is when the price trades above 250MA and the 50MA and 21MA trade above it. Also, 21MA must be higher than 50MA.

  • At the beginning of last week, 21MA crossed below 50MA, which is the first sign of a potential downtrend. However, it seems to have been a fake breakthrough, as in the middle of last week, 21MA broke up again from 50MA.
  • At the time of writing the analysis, 21MA and 50MA are almost precisely aligned.

RSI or Relativity Strength Index

(Figure 2. ETH / USD 4H chart RSI)
  • In the big picture, the RSI indicator and the price chart speak “the same language.” The movement is in one direction, and they are correlated with each other.
  • If you look closely, you can see the more minor divergences that arose last week, which spoke in favor of the price increase.
  • The correlation between the indicator and the price chart speaks in favor of market bulls.

Support, Resistance, and Trend Lines

Figure 3. (trend lines and support/resistance zones)

• In the big picture, Ethereum is strong. The price is trading above several vital support areas, and the trend lines have formed an expanding tunnel.

• There is also a narrowing triangle inside the expanding tunnel. If the price breaks up out of the triangle, we can expect a new all-time high. However, if the price breaks below the triangle, we can see another testing of the $2,050-$2,150 support zone.

For this week

The price of Ethereum is relatively strong. In the long run, everything speaks in favour of an increase in the price of Ethereum, and we will probably see a new high this week or next, potentially $3,000 per Ethereum.

This week, however, it is vital to keep an eye on how market bears and bulls behave within the narrowing triangle.
