The post Will ETH Price Correct Before A Surge? Here’s What Traders Can Expect appeared first on Coinpedia Fintech News
Ethereum has navigated a turbulent path in recent weeks, with its price exhibiting considerable volatility. ETH has seen its value both skyrocket to unprecedented levels and plummet in reaction to market dynamics and investor mood. With Bitcoin currently stealing the spotlight by surpassing the $27K mark, it’s prompting ETH holders to seize the opportunity to accumulate more coins during the price dip, anticipating a potential bullish surge. However, despite the enticing prospect of ETH mirroring Bitcoin’s ascension, market signals indicate that a downward correction could be on the horizon.
Ethereum Developers May Trigger A Surge
The escalating wait times and burgeoning interest in establishing Ethereum validator nodes have prompted developers to contemplate a substantial increase in the current constraints. Developers are proposing a dramatic escalation in the validator limit from 32 ether (ETH) to 2,048 ether, marking a staggering 6,300% increase.
This proposed change is a response to the actions of large entities like Lido and various crypto exchanges that offer staking services, which have been compelled to initiate multiple validator nodes to provide staking yield services to their users.
Current data indicates that the wait time to operate an Ethereum validator node has increased to 44 days. Despite this, no entity is currently queued to exit the network. This suggests a strong demand from large Ether holders to join the network and earn nearly a 5% annual yield, indicating a potential upward pressure on the ETH price.
Furthermore, data from Lookonchain reveals that numerous large-scale investors, or ‘whales,’ are capitalizing on Ethereum’s dip to a weekly low by significantly increasing their purchases. This strategy presents an ideal opportunity to sell at elevated prices during a bullish market phase. Overall, these market sentiments could potentially serve as a catalyst, sparking a price reversal for Ethereum.
What’s Next For ETH Price?
Ethereum’s recovery efforts are currently encountering resistance above the 50-day EMA at $1,732, though a slight positive is that the bulls have managed to keep the price above $1,700.
Currently, Ethereum is attempting to make a surge above $1,750 as buyers are preparing for a breakout above the 23.6% Fib channel with intense buying pressure. However, bears will strongly defend a push above EMA100, which may initiate a slight downward correction for the ETH price. As of writing, ETH price trades at $1,741, surging over 1.3% in the last 24 hours.
If the ETH price rebounds from $1,700, it will likely strive to rally above the 100-day EMA. If successful, this could signal the end of the short-term correction phase, potentially leading to a rise first to $1,861 and then to $1,916.
On the other hand, if the price declines from its current position and falls below $1,700, it would suggest that the bears are still in control. While there is minor support at $1,630, a breach of this level could see Ethereum’s price plummeting to $1,372.
