Ethereum. What shall we do and who is to blame?

BINANCE:ETHUSD   Ethereum / U.S. Dollar
The share of bitcoin in the total capitalization of the market has peaked since the beginning of the year, and equals 58 percent at the moment. Meanwhile, altcoins keep on storming their minimum values in search for bottom. And Ethereum is rushing into the unknown ahead of the whole planet, ignoring any encouraging comments about cryptocurrencies.

The epoch of weak altcoins will last at least until the index of dominance updates to the level of 62-65%. Then, 68% will be the last milestone on the way to a total eclipse of the era of altcoins, and Bitcoin will not be able to pass it very easily. In case it happens, only the top-10 old-timer dinosaurs of the altcoin population will come to life.

All sorts of scary stories that the fate of dot-coms will repeat, as cryptocurrencies have already jumped ahead of them having fallen by 80% since the beginning of the year, making market actors' hair stand on end, are bearing fruit. Faith is bleeding off the heart.

Even some market actors add fuel to the controversy.

For instance, Vitalik Buterin has recently said that the cryptocurrency market will no longer seek to new capital inflows, since making fuss over this topic was aimed at drawing attention to the blockchain technology itself. Coins, endlessly growing after certain news, have become a simple example of how technology can be introduced into everyday life, combining virtual and material worlds.

As for the price of his own token, he has spoken very ambiguously. The general idea is that Vitalik is very skeptical about the growth, and his opinion affects the morale of the market. News agencies misrepresent the words of the Ethereum founder in their own way.

We can interpret Vitalik's degrading mood in various manners, but we can see the following in the current situation. Ethereum developers agreed to lower the reward for miners to 2 ETH this autumn, while the Proof-of-stake algorithm was delayed for 12 months. Since a lot of people and companies are involved in mining Ethereum , the drop in its rate may be artificial. This drop is aimed at driving as many participants out of the mining market as possible, so that then, when the reward for solving a block decreases, the mining of Ethereum will be profitable. Most likely, in conditions of a reduced reward, the market will look for a new balance point of the cost by supporting the growth of the token exchange value. Such support can be lent by manufacturers of mining hardware.

In the future, the reward for mining will keep on decreasing, which may similarly affect the cost.

The current situation shows that, the trend to decline has not been broken yet, regardless of the reasons. The technical picture is very peculiar. There is an evident divergence, and any attempt to settle above 0.032 can enforce the impulse. But in this case, even the target of moving towards 0.036 looks fantastic, and it does not make sense to take a lead of it. The first signal for the reversal will already be at the end of a bounce from the support point, or when forming a full reversal pattern in the form of a double bottom or a candle pattern.

If we have a look at the ETH/USD chart, everything here is pessimistic too.

If we look at the token chart in detail, we will see a pattern of continuation of the trend, protracted from the previous decline.

The timing of consolidation has obviously decreased in time, which demonstrates that the buyers are more likely to leave the market than to enter it. Most likely, there will be an even more powerful upsell. A bounce to 224 is not impossible, and the decline may continue afterwards.

Based on the continuing trend pattern observed on the chart, we can see that the price is in the middle of the impulse at the moment, and, having preliminary tested out the level of $150, it will continue to decline towards $113.

It is likely that the cost of an Ethereum token will decrease faster than Bitcoin . It will be like this until the mentioned levels reach the targets of token decrease, and simultaneously reach the dominance index of 62, 65 and 68 values, and the cost of bitcoin of 5800, 5300 and 4800, respectively. It is ahead of the game to enter the coin before these values are achieved. At least, until the token gives an explicit signal for a reversal. In the current situation, it is better to wait out the market decline in Bitcoin , Stable Coin, or, if you are very conservative, in Fiat.

Globally, we will be able to talk about the reversal only if the downstream channel breaks out, but a breakout is not enough. The signal to enter the position comes in when a pattern is triggered. When coming to the consolidation zone 275, the upward movement is likely to resume with the target of 450. If this movement coincides with the matropattern, it is better to move out when the smaller value is reached.


On a global scale, we are expecting the growth. But we are still within a falling trend, and there are no visible signs of a reversal. As much as you'd like to buy an asset which has gone 85% down in value, the fact that it is cheap is not enough. It is September 2018, and if you think it is cheap, remember, that it can be even cheaper!

We do not want to guess about the reversal moment, so, we will publish the signal to a reversal in an update of the idea.

Comment: The level of buying is 197.4. The target is 204.67. Instead of a stop order, we would rather use "averaging", because the stop orders are being hunted. We will add levels for averaging to the update of ideas if the market continues to decline. Please, note that it is a high-risk transaction. The second wave of decline in the market with a breakout to 170 and below is possible.

Thanks for updates !

@kryptowavetrader, Divergence is present in stochastics. The impulse can go both up and down. It is worth to stand in the direction of the pulse with a short stop, in any case.

@benice_trader, macd bearish divergence between the impulse is strong indication that this move up is coming to an end.

Do you conduct active trading now? Or are you waiting for a 68% level? :)

@obzen.0, We conduct active trade. Currently we are in a position with a short stop. The situation is such that on a short time frame we are in an ascending channel. Proceeding from the picture that develops, the approach up to 233 does not contradict the global descending movement and even vice versa, he will finish painting the picture with the channel boundary fixed. In the breakdown of 213, we can withdraw to the lower ascending channel 196-202, where we also continue to consolidate. The Elder's indicator at the same time shows that the strength of the sellers is now less. Time-frame is minute.
