Ethereum’s Downward Bias

Market picture

Cryptocurrency market capitalisation fell 0.2% over the past 24 hours, losing ground since the start of the day on Wednesday but remaining within the range of $1.16-1.20 trillion since last Thursday. The market remains in a “Greed” mood, according to the Fear and Greed Index.

Bitcoin has been squeezed in the $30.0-30.8K range, above a similar consolidation in April, and has settled into an overall uptrend. The shorter-term picture, however, suggests potential correction exists, with short-term targets in the $29.8K area (76.4% of the rally since mid-June), but a pullback to $28.9K (61.8%) is more likely. This should not put the bullish trend in question but will fuel further buying.

Ethereum is trading in a corridor with a slight bearish bias, correcting 4% from its 22 June high to $1860. The development of a corrective pullback here sets the stage for a decline to the $1800-1810 area. A critical round level and the 61.8% line from the last rally to the 50-day moving average are concentrated here.
