Ethereum on the Verge of a Breakout, Attempts to Breach $200 and $205 Resistances
May 16, 2020 at 12:07 // News
Ethereum has been trading below the $200 resistance since the last bearish impulse. It has fallen to $180 low and the bulls have been struggling to push ETH above the previous highs.
After the last breakdown, buyers managed to push ETH to $205 high and it dropped below $200 resistance. The recent fall can mean that the crypto lacks buying at higher price levels.
There is a certainty that Ethereum can achieve an upward move to retest the $227 resistance. Perhaps, the possible way is for the bulls to break through the resistance of $200 and $205. This will accelerate the price movement to retest or break the overhead resistance. On May 13, Ether rebounded at $190 low, and broke through the resistance at $200 but was resisted at $205. The resistance has compelled the crypto to drop below $200.
Ethereum indicator analysis
The bulls are still struggling to break above the support line and the EMAs. The upward move can be sustained if price breaks above the EMAs and the momentum are sustained. The market is above the 40 % range of the daily stochastic, indicating a possible bullish movement.
Key Resistance Zones: $220, $240, $260
Key Support Zones: $160, $140, $120
What is the next direction for Ethereum?
The upward price movement is now dependent upon the breaking of the resistant levels of $200 and $205. The sideways move below the resistance will continue if the bulls fail to breach the resistance levels. Ethereum will rise and retest the resistance at $227 if the bulls are successful above the resistances. However, if the bulls fail, the bears may sink ETH to $176 low.

One of the longest-standing debates in Bitcoin, regarding the optimal block size, may slowly start to fizzle away as scaling solutions like SegWit make transactions smaller, effectively increasing throughput. As per Segwit.space, a monitoring interface for adoption, over 60 percent of on-chain transactions SegWit transaction format, January 6, 2019. Optimal Efficiency of Bitcoin Blocks Bitcoin’s primary value proposition is culled by some as ‘scarcity‘ by way of a capped supply. Another fairly scarce commodity is block space on the Bitcoin network. Blocks have a theoretical limit that allows only a certain amount of data to go into each block. High demand for block space leads to higher fees and vice versa. SegWit reduces the size of each transaction by omitting signature data. Since each transaction consumes less block space, network throughput is able to increase proportionally by including more transactions. Increasing adoption of SegWit is a result of people realizing that the implications of increasing the block size are vast and plentiful. The Lightning Network is also being touted as an important scaling solution for Bitcoin, migrating transactions to a second…Jan 6, 2020
On Monday Microsoft stock experienced a 5% market rise. The global computer software firm is well-placed to outlive the coronavirus storm better than many other stocks. Global computer software firm, Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ: MSFT) stock has experienced a 5% market rise on Monday. Since sliding during the coronavirus sell-off, the firm’s stock did not plunge into the red in the first quarter. However, the firm’s stock trades 17% below it high on February 17. In the firm’s fiscal second-quarter earnings report issued in January, Microsoft reported earning $1.51 per share on revenue of $36.91 billion, which was the highest on analysts’ expectations of $1.32 EPS and revenue of $35.67 billion. However, in the fiscal 3rd quarter 2020 guidance update, released towards the end of February as a response to the coronavirus pandemic, it disclosed that it would not meet its revenue forecast for its more personal computing segment because of hindrances to its China supply chain. The company said in a statement: “Although we see strong Windows demand in line with our expectations, the supply chain is returning to normal…Apr 6, 2020
Like the rest of the crypto market, Ethereum, too, has performed extremely well over the past hour. The second-largest cryptocurrency, which traded around $183 for most of Wednesday, surged as high as $195 just minutes ago on the back of a short squeeze in the Bitcoin derivatives market, which pushed the asset up nearly 10% in under 30 minutes. Ethereum, unfortunately, didn’t benefit as much as the market leader, rallying a mere 4%. The underperformance was presumably due to the fact that the cryptocurrency outperformed Bitcoin yesterday, making this anomaly a mere sign of the two assets getting square. Ethereum Could Rally Even Higher: Analysts With Ethereum making a run on the $190 price zone for the first time since the “Black Thursday” crash, analysts believe that there’s more upside in cards for ETH for a variety of reasons. Prior to this move, crypto trader Hsaka remarked that the recent price action has allowed ETH to “break its pivotal $175-180 zone,” adding that historical moves around this price have always seen “substantial follow through.” Indeed, when ETH finally broke past this…Apr 23, 2020
From the $3,700 lows established in the middle of March, Bitcoin has mounted an extremely steep comeback over the past five to six weeks. In fact, the leading cryptocurrency is currently trading over 100% off the lows, effectively recovering all of the crash’s damage. While many investors have taken this performance as a sign of the resilience of the crypto market, saying that it suggests BTC has room to rally, a prominent trader says that Bitcoin is registering a sign of “exhaustion” after the jaw-dropping run. It Could Be It for Bitcoin Bulls After rallying as high as $7,800 on Thursday, Bitcoin stalled, failing to surmount this key level in the face of bearish selling pressure. Crypto trader Cantering Clark remarked on April 24th that BTC’s inability to rally further from the current levels is “not the type of response I would want,” referencing how the price action that transpired on Friday and is transpiring today on Saturday is anything but bullish. He went as far as to say that from how he sees it, BTC’s failure to hold above…Apr 25, 2020
Bitcoin crashed below a key support yesterday but there was no follow through. So, the price ended up climbing back above the support and flipped bullish. Even though it is now showing signs of strength, there is a good chance that it is all temporary and we might be headed lower after a near term retest of the trend line support turned resistance. In the most optimistic scenario, we could expect a rally towards $9.5k now that the S&P 500 (SPX) has also started the day in green and has shot past the psychological resistance of 3,000. It is important to realize that the index is close to topping out. This recent bullishness seems to be an attempt to trap in more bulls before the actual downtrend begins. At this point, a large number of retail traders are bullish on the market again expecting further rallies hoping that the Coronavirus situation would be resolved soon. In my opinion, most traders with this kind of a mindset are the perfect example of the complacence that we have seen in financial markets…May 26, 2020
The Dow Jones climbed by more than 100 points today. Fueled mainly by a rally in Boeing, the Dow was the top-performing US stock market index. As tensions ease on trade, bulls continue to push the Dow 30 higher and higher. The Dow Jones rose over 100 points on Monday as a “Santa Claus” rally helped lift the index towards new record highs. With Christmas two days away, many Wall Street traders aren’t at their desks, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty of action in the stock market. Here are five reasons the Dow rallied today: 1. Boeing stock (NYSE: BA) is booming after the company dumped its CEO. As the most heavily weighted stock in the Dow 30, the performance of Boeing (NYSE: BA) stock is always vital. Today saw a massive 2.6% bump in the aerospace giant, as Boeing finally moved on from its embattled CEO, Dennis Muilenberg, whose resignation was announced today. It has been a year of crisis management for Muilenberg, and bulls seem to believe his departure is good news for the company. Up…Dec 24, 2019
Blockchain Capital Partner, Spencer Bogart, has been talking to Bloomberg about his predictions for Bitcoin in 2020. TL;DR – things will go vertical, and though he isn’t specifically referring to BTC price, that may well follow. The End Of The Horizontal Competition Era Bogart’s most anticipated element of cryptocurrency industry development in 2020 is to see the ‘Vertical Construction’ era play out. The past few years have been dominated by ICOs and the growth of horizontal competition. People realised that open, public, permissionless blockchains were the real driver of innovation in the space, and not the private enterprise blockchains being toyed with from 2014-2016. The result of this realisation was the launch of many, many competing blockchain platforms, all hoping to be the 3.0 or 4.0 to Bitcoin’s 1.0. Lots of these have now hit the market, but are not attracting much developer attention. Bitcoin Skyward Bound Instead, investor and developer momentum has shifted back to building on platforms which are already working, such as Bitcoin and Ethereum. This has been seen recently, with research suggesting that the Ethereum network has…Dec 24, 2019
The supply chain industry is at the forefront of the blockchain revolution, utilizing the superior database management of the technology to streamline back-end processes. Tesla and BMW are the latest to join the movement, as the two companies use blockchain solutions to cut costs and improve the speed of shipments, per Forbes, April 15, 2020. Cost Management and Verification of Supply Chains Tesla and BMW are two of the largest automotive manufacturers in the world. By signaling their intent to use blockchain, they provide an extra layer of legitimacy to solutions that improve existing infrastructure using blockchain. In order to improve the speed of receiving shipments, Tesla signed up to be beneficiary of a product that uses the Hyperledger Fabric to minimize paperwork and hasten the movement of goods. The program, CargoSmart, dramatically improved the speed of shipment by automating pick up, applications, and final release mechanisms. BMW, on the other hand, is not a beneficiary of third-party blockchain protocols but has built its own product, dubbed “PartChain”. Andreas Wendt, a member of BMW’s board who presides over purchasing and supply chain…Apr 15, 2020
