Ethereum Price Long-Term Analysis
Ignoring charts, Ethereum’s long-term has a bright outlook thanks to the upcoming update to Ethereum 2.0, one of the most anticipated updates in the history of cryptocurrencies. Although it’s still unknown when exactly ETH 2.0 will be out, developers have been optimistic lately.
The weekly chart is extremely bullish, especially after Ethereum managed to set a two-year high at $415, cracking $366, a high established in June 2019. The breakout towards $415 had increasing bull volume and it’s reminiscent of the 2017-18 bull rally.
Ethereum also managed to climb above the 100-EMA for the first time since its 2017 bull run. The RSI is overextended, however, FOMO will most likely continue pushing Ethereum price up.
The monthly chart has also confirmed an uptrend, not seen since 2017, and Ethereum price climbed above the 26-EMA and the 12-EMA which are looking for a bull cross within the next 2 months, again something not seen since 2017. If August remains bullish, we are likely going to see Ethereum’s trading volume increase over the past month.
The amount of Ethereum held by top addresses has been increasing throughout 2020 according to Santiment. Similarly, daily active deposits on exchanges have been increasing a lot since June 2020.
However, this doesn’t mean people are selling Ethereum, the number of coins inside exchanges exploded on March 12 after the crash, however, it has been dropping to levels seen before the crash. This indicates that Eth investors are more willing to hold now and not sell even though the price of ETH has been going up in the past month.
