ETHUSD: Bullish Engulfing Pattern Above $2,800


Ethereum tidak dapat mempertahankan momentum Bullishnya minggu lalu, dan setelah menyentuh level tertinggi $3.280 pada 10 Februari, Ethereum mulai menurun dengan level terendah $2.837 pada 13 Februari.

Penjualan yang kami lihat di ETHUSD terjadi karena likuidasi aset secara luas ke dalam USD menyusul kekhawatiran (yang sekarang tampaknya telah mereda) perang antara Rusia dan Ukraina.

ETHUSD terus mempertahankan konsolidasinya di atas $3.000 dan saat ini diperdagangkan pada $3.126 di sesi perdagangan Eropa.

Kita dapat dengan jelas melihat pola bullish engulfing di atas level $2.800 yang menandakan kelanjutan bullish dan pembentukan tren naik.

ETH sekarang diperdagangkan tepat di atas level pivot $3.100 dan bergerak dalam saluran konsolidasi. Harga ETHUSD sekarang menguji level resistance klasiknya di $3,119, dan level resistance Fibonacci di $3,130 setelah itu jalan menuju $3,300 akan dibersihkan.

Indeks kekuatan relatif berada di 52 menunjukkan sentimen pasar NETRAL yang diperkirakan akan bergeser ke arah sentimen bullish.

Beberapa indikator teknis memberikan sinyal pasar BELI, dengan beberapa rata-rata bergerak memberikan sinyal BELI juga, dan kita sekarang melihat level $3.300 hingga $3.500 dalam kisaran jangka pendek.

Ethereum was unable to sustain its Bullish momentum last week, and after touching a high of $3,280 on February 10, it started to decline with a low of $2,837 on February 13.

The selling we saw in ETHUSD occurred due to a broad-based liquidation of the assets into the USD following the fears (which now seem to have subsided) of a war between Russia and Ukraine.

ETHUSD continues to maintain its consolidation above $3,000 and is currently trading at $3,126 in the European trading session.

We can clearly see a bullish engulfing pattern above the $2,800 handle which signifies a bullish continuation and formation of an uptrend.

ETH is now trading just above its pivot level of $3,100 and is moving in a consolidation channel. The price of ETHUSD is now testing its classic resistance level of $3,119, and Fibonacci resistance level of $3,130 after which the path towards $3,300 will get cleared.

The relative strength index is at 52 indicating a NEUTRAL market sentiment which is expected to shift towards a bullish sentiment.

Some of the technical indicators are giving a BUY market signal, with some of the moving averages giving a BUY signal as well, and we are now looking at the levels of $3,300 to $3,500 in the short-term range.

ETH is now trading above its 100 hourly and 200 hourly simple moving averages.
  • Ether’s bullish reversal seen above the $2,800 mark
  • Short-term range appears to be Mild BULLISH
  • High/ Lows is indicating a NEUTRAL market
  • Average True Range is indicating LESS Market Volatility

Ethereum failed to clear its resistance level of $3,200 last week and started moving into a bearish channel which continues today, pushing the price below the $2,500 handle in the European trading session.

Ethereum markets are witnessing a strong bearish phase with the investors selling their holdings in the wake of Russia attacking Ukraine.

We have seen that the safe haven status of the USD holds, which continues to push down the prices of ETHUSD in the medium-term scenario.

We can clearly see a bearish engulfing pattern below the $2,900 handle, which signifies the end of a bullish phase and the start of a bearish phase in the markets.

ETH is now trading just above its pivot level of $2,352 and is moving in a bearish channel. The price of ETHUSD is now testing its classic support level of $2,235 and Fibonacci resistance level of $2,320 after which the path towards $2,100 will get cleared.

Ether: Strong Bearish Momentum Seen Below $2,900

fxopen-blog.png


ETHUSD is now moving into a strong bearish momentum with the prices trading below the $2,400 handle in the European trading session today.

Both the Williams percent range (daily) and StochRSI (daily) is indicating an OVERSOLD market, which means that a pullback in the level of Ethereum is expected soon.

We can see that the bearish trend line has extended, and now a move below $2,200 is expected in the short-term.

The prices of ETHUSD need to remain above the $2,100 handle for any bullish reversal in the markets.

At present, we are looking for immediate targets of $2,200 after which it is expected to enter into a consolidation and correction phase.

The key support level to watch is $2,100, and the key resistance level is $2,500 for this week.

ETH has declined -12.29% with a price change of -332.72$ in the past 24hrs, and has a trading volume of 20.564 billion USD.

We can see an increase of 36.99% in the total trading volume in the last 24 hrs due to the broad-based selling in the crypto markets globally.

The Week Ahead

Ethereum is now moving into a consolidating level above $2,200 which if completed will give the buyers a chance to pull back its level towards an important resistance zone located at $2,500.

The ongoing Russia-Ukraine war crisis is also affecting the global cryptocurrency markets including Ethereum because the investors are unwilling to hold Ethereum in view of the market liquidity crunch in Europe and Russia.

If the prices of ETHUSD continue to remain above the $2,000 handle as seen today, it will start the next leg of its bullish move towards $2,500 handle next week.

The immediate short-term outlook for Ether has turned strongly BEARISH; the medium-term outlook has turned NEUTRAL; and the long-term outlook for Ether is BULLISH towards the $3,000 handle.

This week, Ether is expected to move in a range between the $2,000 and $2,500, to trade at levels above $2,500 next week.

Technical Indicators:

The moving averages convergence divergence (12,26): at -71.42 indicating a SELL

We can clearly see a bullish engulfing pattern above $2,550 which signifies a trend reversal, and we have already seen ETHUSD crossing the level of $2,700.

US STOCKS DECLINING DESPITE POSITIVE LABOR MARKET DATA

The euro approached the level of $1.08 per dollar, a new 22-month low. Investors are wary of Europe's economic prospects which depend on Russia's energy resources.

The euro fell below the 1.0 level against the Swiss franc, prompting the Swiss National Bank board members to say they are ready to intervene to stop the rapid strengthening of the franc.

The war in Eastern Europe is driving up the prices of wheat, copper, gold, palladium, oil, and also negatively affecting the value of US stocks. Nasdaq 100 (as well as other indexes) is declining despite positive data from the labor market.

Friday's job report for February was indeed strong. The number of employed individuals (minus the agricultural sector) increased by 678k (against the 423k forecast), while unemployment fell to 3.8%. The report indicates the biggest increase in the labor market since July last year.

Let’s have a look at the chart. Nasdaq index’s futures broke through the multi-month ascending channel, including the parallel line (highlighted in blue). The low volumes on March 1-3 (#1) can be interpreted as a shortage of demand, as the decline on March 7 occurred on rising volumes (#2). This is a sign of a bear market — where going long is risky.

To benefit from fluctuations in currencies and stock indices markets, consider enlisting the services of a reliable broker like FXOpen. (https://www.fxopen.com/en/)

ETHUSD and LTCUSD Technical Analysis – 10th MAR, 2022
fxopen-blog.png


ETHUSD: Head and Shoulders Pattern Below $2,700

Ethereum continued to move in a bearish phase last week, having touched a low of $2,448 on March 7th, after which the prices started to consolidate above the level of $2,500.

We can see ETHUSD moving in a bearish momentum because of the Russia-Ukraine war and its effects on the global investor sentiments.

Despite the fact that some correction was seen in the USD, the medium-term outlook for Ethereum remains bearish with a downside projection of $2,200.

We can clearly see a head-and-shoulders pattern below the $2,700 handle which is a bearish pattern signifying the end of a bullish phase and the start of a bearish phase in the markets.

ETH is now trading just below its pivot level of $2,588 and is moving in a bearish channel. The price of ETHUSD is now testing its classic support level of $2,558, and Fibonacci support level of $2,580 after which the path towards $2,300 will get cleared.

The relative strength index is at 34 indicating a WEAKER demand for Ethereum, as well as the continuation of the selling pressure in the markets.

All of the technical indicators are giving a STRONG SELL market signal.

All of the moving averages are giving a STRONG SELL signal, and we are now looking at the levels of $2300 to $2200 in the short-term range.

ETH is now trading below both its 100 hourly and 200 hourly simple moving averages.
  • A bearish reversal seen below the $2700 mark in Eth
  • Short-term range appears to be strongly BEARISH
  • The daily RSI is below 50 at 44 indicating a BEARISH market
  • The average true range is indicating LESSER market volatility

    • Ether: Bearish Momentum Continues Below $2,700

      fxopen-blog.png


      ETHUSD is now moving in a strongly bearish momentum, with the prices trading below the $2,600 handle in the European trading session today.

      Both the Stoch and StochRSI are indicating an OVERSOLD market, which means that a pullback in the levels of Ethereum is expected soon.

      The Ethereum bulls have retracted, and we can see that the selling pressure has resumed which is expected to push down the prices below the $2,500 handle.

      The prices of ETHUSD need to remain above $2,200 for any bullish reversal in the markets.

      At present, we are looking for the immediate target of $2,300 after which it is expected to enter into a consolidation and correction phase.

      This week, the key support level to watch is $2,200, and the key resistance level is $2,700.

      ETH has declined -5.24% with a price change of -143.26$ in the past 24hrs, and has a trading volume of 13.621 billion USD.

      We can see an Increase of 16.69% in the total trading volume in the last 24 hrs, which appears to be normal.

      The Week Ahead

      Ethereum has already exhausted its consolidation channel and is now moving into its next bearish phase towards the level of $2,300.

      The ongoing Russia-Ukraine war crisis is continuing to affect the prices of Ethereum, as new investors are not willing to enter into the market because of the global crisis scenario and the waning demand in the global cryptocurrency markets.

      If the prices of ETHUSD continue to remain above $2,200 this week, we can expect a bullish reversal next week.

      The immediate short-term outlook for Ether has turned strongly BEARISH; the medium-term outlook has turned bearish; and the long-term outlook for Ether is NEUTRAL in present market conditions.

      This week. Ether is expected to move in a range between $2,200 and $2,700, and next week, it is expected to enter into a consolidation phase above $2,500.

      Technical Indicators:

      The moving averages convergence divergence (12,26): at -16.78 indicating a SELL

      The commodity channel index (14-day): at -117.12 indicating a SELL

      The rate of price change: at -4.37 indicating a SELL

      The average directional change (14-day): at 45.85 indicating a SELL

S&P 500 Posts 4th Worst Start To A Year In History
s-p.jpg


After two years of the pandemic dictating the price action in financial markets, another event has triggered market volatility: the Russia-Ukraine war. The wave of sanctions that the Western nations have so far imposed on Russia, the invader, is unprecedented.

It is hardly possible to foresee the long-term effects, and thus, uncertainty reigns. Whenever uncertainty is in the driving seat, financial markets’ volatility increases. Moreover, investors typically pull funds out of risky assets, such as the stock market, in the search for other, more stable ones.

So far, the S&P 500 index has gone down -11.8% in 2022. This is a midterm year in the United States, and corrections are not unusual. However, this is the 4th worst start to a year in history, and investors have all the reasons to be worried. The pandemic has yet to subside, there is a war going on in Europe, and Russia is being isolated from the rest of the world. Plus, inflation is rising in advanced economies.

History Tells Us Stocks Will Likely Rally In H2

While the picture looks bearish, and many investors are fleeing the stock market, there is still space for some good news. If history has taught us anything, a strong comeback might be in the cards.

Here’s why.

Prior to 2022, the top five years with such a negative performance were 2009 (-16.9%), 2020 (-15.1%), 1935 (-14.1%), 1933 (-11.6%), and 1982 (-10.8%). All these saw a strong rebound after the first 49 days of the year, no exception.

Therefore, investors would likely buy the dip, at least according to what historical data tells us.

On Wednesday, the Federal Reserve of the United States is expected to start a new tightening cycle. The market expects the Fed to raise the federal funds rate by 0.25%, and the move is highly priced in.

While higher rates are not good for stocks, it is not the first time when stocks perform in a tightening cycle. The way the Fed delivers the rate hike is as important as the hike itself. If it maintains a dovish bias due to uncertainty in the global geopolitics, the market may simply discount the hike.

All in all, these are turbulent times for financial markets, but history tells investors to be patient. One thing is for sure, though: volatility is here to stay.
