Ether (ethereum / ETH)

Recommended Posts

There don’t seem enough posts or threads on here for ETH so here goes.

Ether seems to be pretty much range bound at the moment. I’d be looking to sell a small portion of the open position at 880 possibly 890 levels. Could be a pull back on the range too 800 again.

If it break though we’d be looking at upside to 1000 which is why I don’t want to close the whole position.

What we need is for a better decouple from BTC as were at a c****y 0.088 when we had 0.12 previously.

ETH futures required please

Reduced by a quarter at 880 :) no real fundamental driving factors bar the poloniex news yesterday and the market still seems like it’s consolidating.

Nice when predictions come through but to be honest I thought it may fall a little bit quicker than it has done. Maybe the poloniex news has aided firmness but who really knows in crypto.

 

For anyone who is looking for trade ideas and stuff on ether can I suggest the ethernews app. It’s sort of purple. I could type up a bit more on this if people want?

 

Another big thing is still that BTC ETH ratio. The former is over valued at the moment I’m sure of that, and I’d look for a top 10 crypto rally shortly basis the cyclical movements and then the alts as well. Maybe an opertunity to buy ETH and sell BTC to play the spread? Maybe that’s another post as well...

I'm sure Community members would be interested in this. I'll keep and eye out and try and 'feature' if appropriate (as goes for all members posts).

I think Ether is holding up rather well.

 

It seems to be slowly moving higher in terms of US Dollar and Bitcoin prices.

 

Ethereum is very interesting with Smart Contracts and ICO and Tokenisation. 

 

The mere fact that the Ether price has not crashed to zero or even down to $100.00 is a positive sign in itself.

EEA added more members including T Mobile. Exciting times ahead...

 


Had a look online but doesn't look like they've updated yet (or at least I couldn't see it). After a bit of digging according to reddit "The EEA sent out an email this morning. The new members are not yet reflected on the EEA site." Below are the companies I believe are on this release, in the spoiler. 

 

Doesn't seem to be much in the way of price action like there has historically been over these releases.

I think the key for Ether is to get through $1000.00. The 4 hr chart still has a downwards bias. Until Ether goes and stays past the $970.00 level, the downwards bias is going to remain.

That 730ish 735 level on ether seems to be the weeks resistance level at the moment and previous support from Wednesday Thursday last week. This is on an hourly chart.

 

Hopefully we’ll see a little consolidation before a break to the upside and then a push back to the 850 usd levels.

...aaaand it’s off $50 back down to 680 so that didn’t happen. It’s quite the resistance!

tell me about it ... break that and we'd be heading for 800 or 900 again. *sigh*

From the article...

 

“What we’re showing is you can use open public infrastructure for regulated financial instruments, which is a very critical step, because from the earliest stages we’ve always believed public infrastructure is a viable way forward for particular instruments that don’t necessarily have high volume secondary markets,”** Sehra said at last year’s launch. “As cryptocurrencies or tokenised fiat-currencies become a more accepted form of payment mechanism it will lead to an increasing uptake in using public blockchain infrastructure for registration, clearing and settlement of the securities.”

Well this is certainly a slow bleed isn't it! You always expect a drop off after a movement as huge as it was previously (in the Dec bull run) but lets be honest ... this is close to the largest crypto sell off since MtGox - and that was a huge player at the time, a 'hack', and spooked the whole market. This is a different beast entirely. I'm still holding the physical and still keen on the 2 - 5 year plan of this protocol, but it would be nice to see some corresponding price action to all the news coming out from the crypto sphere, EEA etc.

Patience is key. Sometimes the smart move is to do nothing.

 

If you believe in the Ether, Ethereum, Blockchain, Smart Contracts and have a strong enough conviction based on the data, information and analysis carried out then just be patient and see where Ether the end of the year.

Interesting to see the BTC and ETH charts side by side, BTC lead by 1 month up until late Feb when it went for a  retest (12000) and ETH simply didn't bother. ETH needs to find support here.

Added back in the last 10% (of the 25% I took at the 880 peak) at a few bucks below 400. Unleveraged long term hold.

 

I’ll come back to ya in 5 years. Sigh. Happy to lose what I’ve put it which is what you need to do with these assets.

 

There’s potential though. The tech is sound and I do believe it will change the world, but ***** me this has been a rough couple months.

    • yes @TrendFollower, there are plenty of long term investors with IG and it's right they should take notice and plan well ahead for any eventuality but traders should be thinking differently and look to be responsive to changes in market conditions. As in my previous post the big indices always look a bit toppy and it's too easy to get in short too soon. Back in 2016 there was talk of impending recession for most of the year and many new traders blew their accounts continually shorting the market trying to 'catch the big one', the get rich quick trade. It was depressing to watch.  Here's another interesting chart of S&P seasonal pattern of average return 1990-2018 suggesting uncertainty in the short term before resumption upward.
    • @Caseynotes, One must remember that on average it can take around 18 months from when the treasury yield curve flips or inverts to the start of a recession.  People talk about Dr. Copper but another commodity that it is worth keeping an eye on is Lumber. When housing construction begins to drop then that can be one of many indicators to have a look at. Others are inflation, interest rate direction, wage growth, unemployment, etc. There are many well documents indicators which signal a potential recession is around the corner.  From a trading perspective one should not worry as long as one is comfortable shorting. Those who are not may struggle to consistently make enough profits during a recessionary period. 
    • @Caseynotes, Yes that is right. I have seen some calling the recession for the past two to three years! They have been calling it as if it is around the corner. Then when it does not come they move the goal posts via obscure technical analysis. When one challenges it, one is deemed negative or a naysayer.  Corrections happen large and small. Investors sell investments to take profits. This has been happening since the markets began. Prices go up and down. Prices are bullish and bearish. Of course trading sentiment plays a big part but for me following the price action and letting the price action lead you to a trading decision is key. Trying to wait for the price action to follow your view and then changing the narrative by giving technical reasoning when it does not follow your view in my opinion will lead to missing out on trading opportunities.  For a sound trader, recessions, should not be feared but welcomed. If one understands how prices react during recessions then one can prepare their trading strategy for this outcome but for when it happens and not before.
