Ethereum Price: Trends and Highlights for August 19

  • ETH/BTC has possibly made a bullish Adam and Eve pattern.
  • There is resistance at ₿0.0198.
  • The bullish divergence has developed in the RSI and MACD.
  • The 400-hour moving average can be considered a resistance benchmark.

ETH Price Forming Adam and Eve Pattern

A closer look at the Ethereum price reveals a possible Adam and Eve pattern. ETH Price The pattern is similar to a double bottom, with the only exception being that the second bottom is smoother than the first. Additionally, we can see a resistance area at ₿0.0198.

Technical Indicators

A look at the MACD and RSI reveals that bullish divergence has developed over the duration of this pattern. The divergence is significant and present in both indicators. Additionally, it is visible until the daily time-frame. This observation supports the creation of a bullish pattern and a move towards the resistance at ₿0.0198. A look at the moving averages suggests that the Ethereum price is at a critical juncture in time. It is trading between the 100- and 200-period moving averages (MA). ETH Price The previous upward move failed on August 14 once the ETH price reached the 200-period MA. On the right side of the graph, we can see that the last time the price traded above the 200-period MA was in June 2019. Therefore, the MA can be considered a very significant resistance — possibly stopping the price rally before it reaches the resistance area.

Future Movement

While the Ethereum price might continue to increase above the MA and reach the resistance area, we think the increase will be short-lived. This view stems from the previous long-term movement and the lack of a suitable level for the initiation of a reversal. We expect the ETH price to drop towards ₿0.018 soon.

Ethereum Price Summary

The Ethereum price has created a bullish Adam and Eve pattern. According to our analysis, it is likely to increase towards ₿0.0198. However, we do not believe this is the beginning of a long-term upward move. Rather, we expect ETH to eventually make new lows below ₿0.018. Do you think Ethereum will reach the resistance area?
