Ether - Bid price of $756.00 for upward resumption of trend

Recommended Posts

Ether looks very interesting. It is open source and features smart contract functionality. I think 2018 will be very interesting for Ether. The Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA) is fascinating, especially the participants involved and their calibre. 

 

For me the BID price of around $756.00 is an interesting level. If Ether crosses that and at the time of writing it is only around $14.00 off that mark then Ether will be resuming its upward momentum before possible Bitcoin. Bitcoin has a little bit more to do to recommence its upward march.  If Ether does not cross $756.00 level then I fear another sharp drop back into the $600's. 

 

I see Ether hitting $1000.00 in 2018 if not higher. I think Bitcoin traders and investors need to keep an eye on Ether.

 

For those trading on other platforms as well, keep an eye on Ripple, Stellar and IOTA in 2018.

I agree. Only issue is if it crosses that level upward it may be too late to get in. 1000 is a definite target but actually I think 1500 will be hit early 2018.

Situation, it is never to late to get in. As a trend follower that is one of the most valuable lessons I have learnt. 

 

As a trend follower, I will never get in at the bottom and I will never sell at the top. It is the middle part of the trend that I will aim to catch and participate in.

 

Ether is currently around $700.00 area as I write this. If you truly believe that Ether will not only hit $1000 but $1500 then it is not late getting in. Timing cryptocurrencies is extremely difficult. However , if you can get in whilst Ether is in the $600's then it may be worth just watching with some patience as there may be a better entry point.

Hey, I'm already in, just waiting for post holiday to see reaction. I meant they'll make it unlongable and you'll have to keep checking.

Not really sure. I thought the whole point of cryptocurrency was that it is not affected by banks. Should really be open.

Ether hit $887.00 this morning and is clearly attempting to hit its recent high. 

 

It looks like the price action is supporting my opinion and views.

Ether is closely approaching the $1,000.00 price target that I had set earlier.

 

It has just hit $933.10!

 

I think it will hit $1,000.00 very quickly now in days if not within 24 hours. The money will attract to Ether like a magnet to ensure it hits this figure. I do expect a correction back to $800.00 - $900.00 range before trying again above $1,000.00 and then staying above it. 

 

However, this could just as easily go to $1,200.00 as is the madness in the Cryptocurrency arena.

$1500 is my target. As we discussed, ether has been unlongable since the move upwards. Hopefully a correction will allow more entries!

Ether is a trend followers dream!

 

Why? Firstly it is making new highs. Secondly it is targeting a different market within the cryptocurrency and blockchain space compared to Bitcoin. Smart contracts on the Ethereum blockchain are being developed. 

 

However, the price action is extremely positive and bullish. It is heading higher against the US Dollar. There are two important trend lines forming with support at around $990.00 and $770.00 levels on the 4 hour chart. I must admit I do prefer the 4 hour chart but that is my personal preference and I appreciate that others will favour different time horizon charts. 

 

At the time of writing Ether hit $1106.00 If you look at the MACD then it is firmly placed in the bullish zone. The 4 hour RSI is moving higher as I write towards what could be overbought levels. Looking at the chart from me the key support level is around $990.00. I think there will be resistance around the $1106 levels.

 

The market cap is above $100 billion. Apparently transaction volume on the Ethereum network has doubled according to reports and surpassing 10 transactions per second for days at a time. 

 

I think $1500.00 is a serious target for Ether possibly even $2000.00 over a longer time frame. I think the key for me is that Ether stays above $1000.00 level. If it can achieve that then 2018 offers great potential.

When this thread began and we first discussed around the end of Dec price was around $700 and gave opportunities to buy long. Now as price is pushing higher ether is unlongable. I can see from the client sentiment that people are selling but I believe the price will increase as more people invest in ether and people will also invest because the price is going up.

 

Trendfollower I like your views on support levels and it is very clear to see what you are looking at. I reckon that the next profit taking will be at $1200 but will be short lived as more people jump on this trend. Depending on the pullback I agree I may have to revise my target and move my target to $2000 but $1500 looks like a definite target now.

 

For any traders reading this thread, ethers chart is a great trend following chart and is moving now. It is making higher highs with higher lows so buying a position with a stop loss below the highest low is a good trade to take with a defined risk.

Good evening all. Could anyone explain why I cannot currently delete open btc orders. My deposit is getting too high for my liking. It’s a shame to have to always keep open orders “on tap” because all ctyptos are Unlongable most of the time.

The client sentiment is just for customers on IG who have a position in Ether. The majority of IG customers may not have a position in Ether. Also this sentiment does not represent what really may be happening. It is the physical purchase of Ether and physical sale of Ether that moves the price in either direction. Ether is showing similar traits to the Bitcoin moves in the past. It is moving so quick that it is likely to hit levels that were simply not expected so soon. The chart currently for Ether blows the likes of Bitcoin Cash out of the water.

 

Ether is up around 25% at time of writing. Yes I know folks it is around 5:00 am but such is the dedication I have. I think $1500 in 2018 now seems conservative and $2000 seems like a more likely destination. However remember this is crypto mania and in the crypto universe this could easily hit something like $5000 by the end of 2018. We are only on 8th January 2018.

 

When I started this thread as the title suggests the price was $756.00. It has nearly doubled in such a short space of time. Opportunities of such large profits in cryptocurrencies and blockchain occur once in someones lifetime. Even if it is the biggest bubble ever, embrace it, maximise your profit and just make sure you exit before the carnage. In my opinion the bigger the bubble, the bigger the profits.

This latest rally in Ether seems to have arisen from the South Korean market and its leading cryptocurrency exchanges such as the likes of Korbit, Bithumb and Coinone.

 

It is reported that the price of Ether went past $1800 within the South Korean market which was around $500 premium over the average price across the world.

Ether hit $1389.00 and there is now clearly strong momentum. No doubt the media will be reporting on Ether's rise and how it is outperforming Bitcoin, etc.

 

At this rate this will go past $2000.00 and be looking towards $3000.00 if not a lot higher. If the same aggression and assertiveness is shown in Ether's price action then this could go higher than what anyone is expecting. Bitcoin is a prime example of how something went from around $1000.00 to around $19000 within 12 months. 

 

I mentioned $5000.00 in an earlier post but if the same speculative money moves from the likes of Ripple and other alt coins as well as from Bitcoin then Ether could be on its way to experiencing a monster move upwards.

Ether is currently trading below its 20 day moving average. However it is still trading above its 50 and 100 day moving averages. Tomorrow will be interesting.

You are on the right track, the fundamentals are important but the simple TA on a daily basis is more so. With MA's, support and resistance levels, Fibs, trendlines and channel lines will all come together to make a chart you can read

I think Ether has performed admirably during all the media shenanigans in relation to the ban in South Korea. For me this demonstrated that the holders of Ether are not selling. This is very encouraging.

 

It seems that buyers started buying in at around the 38.2 percent Fibonacci retracement levels during the latest rally from around $600.00 to $1300 levels. For me the long term trend is strong and the time of writing I get the impression by looking at the charts that Ether is looking to make new highs and certainly test the previous high. If it does then it could mean the start of the next leg up. 

 

I really do see Ether trying to hit $2,000.00 in 2018.

    • Thursday's pre-market big names and charts.
    • US durable goods data at 1:30 pm today. Dow and S&P still loitering just under the ATHs losing momentum but not looking too concerned, still waiting for a push. On the H1 Dow working it's way up to the new daily pivot around 26600 and Dax looking up at a first target of yesterday's high at 12350.
    • @Xtian, Unfortunately the DRIP option is not available on IG. I accept this is disappointing for those who really want this option. This question keeps on constantly appearing. There are other threads on this very question where you will find more detail. If you type 'DRIP' or 'Dividend Reinvestment' in the search box and press enter then you should find other threads with this very question. 
    • @tombarrow, On IG's UK Spread Betting platform there are quite a few Commodities that have both the 'Spot' and 'Futures' option available trade. There are some where just 'Spot' is available and others where 'Futures' is just available. You will have to go through them to ascertain which they are. If you look at Precious Metals then they all have a 'Spot' and 'Futures' option. I suppose there is more liquidity from a markets / trading perspective which could possibly be the reason for this. Yes there is overnight funding for 'Spot'. You are right 'Futures' do not have overnight funding but the spreads are less attractive.  No overnight funding will not be displayed on the trade. IG will inform you of the charges by sending you a daily statement which includes them. You can alternatively go to the charges / cost section and try and work out the charges yourself.
    • Hi there New to trading metals and wanted to understand a bit more about the spot and futures pricing. I'll make the question in sections so it is easier to answer. 1) For base metals it seems only HG Copper has a futures and spot option. Does this mean there are no futures trading for the other metals? Or is the spot price derived from the LME 3 Month Futures Price? 2) Are there expiry dates on the spot prices and is there overnight funding for spot? (I am aware futures do not have overnight funding but are embedded into the spreads).   3) If there is overnight funding or an expiry date will they be displayed on the trade?
