In tandem with Bitcoin, Ethereum is also moving downward. Only a short-term correction-or are serious losses imminent?
Key Metrics Speak for Ethereum
True, Ethereum yesterday managed to briefly move up to $ 3,120. ETH, however, was unable to build momentum and pulled back up to $ 3,000 as a result. Currently, Ethereum is even trading minimally below, looks weak and could even extend its losses in the short term.
Traders @RektCapital considers however, another development for likely: he expects further consolidation after the recent rejection. The popular technical analyst “The Crypto Cactus” (@TheCryptoCactus on Twitter), on the other hand, comments: Important metrics currently speak for Ethereum – you should just buy (e.g. at eToro or Libertex) and ignore the price. On the one hand, the demand for Ethereum is at an all – time high-but at the same time the supply is at an all-time low. Both combined usually drives the price up. Cactus:
“Demand for ETH at all-time high…
The offer for ETH at the all-time low…
Just buy and stop checking the PA (price action).“
The demand for $ETH is at ATH…
The supply for ETH is at ATL…
Just buy and stop checking PA.
