Ethereum Reclaims $2k Support Since News Broke of Elon Owning Ethereum
To note is that Elon Musk’s statement revealing that he owns Ethereum had a positive effect on the value of ETH. A few hours before the ‘The ₿ Word’ Bitcoin virtual conference went live, Ethereum was trading at the $1,800 support.
Ethereum would then go on to post a five-day high of $2,035 as soon as the event was underway and Elon disclosed his crypto holdings.
At the time of writing, Ethereum is trading at $1,991 as it attempts to fully reclaim the $2k price area as support.
In terms of short-term resistances, the 200-day moving average could be a tough area for Ethereum as highlighted in the following daily ETH/USDT chart. This moving average is providing a considerable amount of resistance around the $2,080 price area.
In addition, the following can be observed from the daily ETH/USDT chart above.
- Ethereum is destined for a death cross, between the 50-day and 200-day moving averages, that could occur before the month of August
- The daily MACD, MFI and RSI are pointing towards a potential short term bullish reversal for Ethereum
Consequently, caution is advised when trading Ethereum due to the mixed environment of a bearish death cross, and a bullish reversal due to the aforementioned indicators, and Elon Musk disclosing that he owns ETH.
