Ethereum (ETH/USD) Outlook – Positive and Challenging in Equal Measures

Recommended Posts


  • The outlook looks positive but challenges lay ahead.
  • ETH/BTC spread highlights Ethereum’s recent strength.

Ethereum Is Predicted To Break New ATH In The Near Future, Really?

Ethereum is starting to move further higher, after slumping between November 2021 and February 2022, with a series of higher lows underpinning the move higher. The positive tailwinds from these higher lows have now pushed ETH/USD to the lower boundary of an important zone of resistance built from a cluster of previous swing lows. This zone, between $3,050 and $3,410, will likely take time to break fully and may see Ethereum trade sideways to slightly higher over the coming weeks in a ‘two steps forward, one step back’ pattern. If Ethereum breaks out of this zone to the topside, the multi-month series of lower highs will have been broken convincingly, adding further positive momentum to the move. The 50-day simple moving average adds a layer of protection to any short-term sell-off.

The ETH/BTC spread also highlights Ethereum’s return to favor. The second-largest coin by market cap is currently outperforming Bitcoin with the spread bouncing off a prior horizontal low around 0.0645. This rebound, and the break of the previous downtrend, look to be consolidating before a potential move back to the February 3 spike high at 0.07512. The 50-day sma again acts as first-line support. A long way to go before the December 9 high is threatened, but a target nonetheless.

    • Hello, Is any interest paid on "available" cash (not "margin") in a spread betting account? For example, if I held £10k in an account and had no open positions. The reason for asking is that I understand that proceeds from short sales in a CFD will receive interest (benchmark-2.5%), so was wondering if that applied to all cash, and couldn't find an answer on the web site.   Thanks.
    • Hi @Mark12 If you are trading shares, you will have the option to place a limit order to sell your existing position. When the market opens, please check if your order level is close to where the market is trading. All the best, OfentseIG
    • We have to wait until Friday to find out if the UK economy skirted a recession.   Richard Snow, foreign exchange analyst at Daily FX, tells IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor that after the third quarter contraction of 0.3%, there is a risk around the incoming data for the fourth quarter. Here he discusses GBP/USD as a trade to go short. But what if GDP comes in slightly higher? Richard says that is likely to be largely academic and that he believes the short trade will prevail.
