Ethereum Technical Analysis

Moving average crossovers are always interesting, so let’s start there: Ethereum crossed above its 20 and 50 day moving averages yesterday. Trend traders will want to observe that the strongest trend appears on the 90 day horizon; over that time period, price has been moving up. It should be noted, though, that a trend in the opposite direction, going down, exists on the 30 day timeframe. So if you expect the primary trend to resume, the counter trend may be providing an opportunity to buy dips. For additional context, note that price has gone down 9 out of the past 14 days.

  • From ceterispar1bus:

    If @thorchain_org works as envisioned for cross-chain swaps, it would make me more open to the idea that we’ll get dapps interacting cross-chain at some point as well. Would this impact the moat/network effects of DeFi on Ethereum? Eg. Take out loan on Ethereum to use on Polkadot

  • From twobitidiot:

    There are probably ~4-5 DeFi “products” with product-market fit right now.Bitcoin – digital gold
    Ethereum – digital asset creation & settlement
    Uniswap – permissionless exchange & market maker
    USDT/Dai – dollar-pegged, censor-resistant stablecoinsIt’s still so early.

  • From NoodleofBinance:

    I repeat:As both US and Chinese stock markets enter mad bull phase, it will only be a matter of time before #bitcoin $btc and #Ethereum $eth, $crypto embark on their moonshot missionBeartards with PTSD from 2018 will be the biggest loser in this upcoming crypto mad bull
