Recently, buyers pushed the price to a high of $250 but were resisted as the market retraced to a $225 low. Today buyers are unrelenting as they retest the $250 resistance.
The market has reached a high of $246 at the time of writing. Ether will rally above $265 if buyers are successful. The uptrend will extend to the $280 resistance level.
Incidentally, this is a positive move as Ether has almost recovered from the bear market. However, if the bulls are unsuccessful, it will be mandatory for the coin to be in a range-bound movement between $230 and $250. This is pending when the bulls will have passage to continue the uptrend.
Ethereum indicator analysis
Following the resistance at $250, Ethereum retraced to the support of the 12-day EMA to resume the uptrend. The uptrend is mandatory as long as the price is above EMAs. The reverse will be the case if the price is below the EMAs. Also, ETH is at level 64 of the Relative Strength Index. This indicates that the crypto is in the bullish trend zone and it is likely to rise.
Key Resistance Zones: $220, $240, $260
Key Support Zones: $160, $140, $120
What is the next direction for Ethereum?
Ethereum is making positive moves as the market is nearing to override the bear market. It is currently battling to breach the resistance at $250. The bulls’ clearing the current resistance will accelerate Ether to attain the peak price.

CoinDesk reporter Leigh Cuen is joined by attorney Preston Byrne, a partner at the Washington, D.C., office of Anderson Kill, to talk about schemes, scams and constitutional rights.

Ethereum had all manner of promises that were made…the statements coming from the Ethereum Foundation were somewhat more measured.” Regardless of whether any particular project is an attempt at fraud, it’s likely that online money schemes of every variety will become more common during this coronavirus crisis. According to Thomas Papageorge, head of the Consumer Protection Unit at the San Diego District Attorney’s office, there’s a “clear pattern” of more white-collar crimes since the recession began. “The rate of incidents, the amount of fraud, does increase dramatically during an emergency situation like this,” Papageorge…May 11, 2020
E-voting is gaining its place in the growing discussion over the use of blockchain. In our view, when technology addresses such socially sensitive issues, values step forward to the fore, together with the differences and clashes that they imply. Such democratic values convey the identity, pathologies and fears of the context from which they come. In that sense, the technical operation of designing and developing a voting system entails political and legal effects that make the matter case-sensitive, depending on the different territorial and constitutional traditions. Thus, we believe that the debate needs to be free of the idea that a perfect and universal solution is possible. Rather, the main concern is to embed relevant constitutional values and their proportional balancing within the system. Tools should be adapted to the political direction provided by representative bodies in compliance with the overarching constitutional constraints. Some past e-voting experiences Previous experiments of e-voting have encountered both contextual and structural difficulties. In Europe, the main point of reference is Estonia’s remote e-voting system. Analysts and researchers have highlighted critical issues related to the…Feb 3, 2020
As fears over the coming economic recession continue to mount, demand for gold continues to surge. And as mining operations have frozen due to the coronavirus outbreak, there’s a recipe for dwindling supply that could have an astronomical impact on the asset’s value in the months ahead. The surging demand and lack of supply, however, has resulted in the rapid growth of digital versions of the precious metal. And we’re not talking about Bitcoin – it’s Tether’s version of digital gold as well as other stablecoin competitors who are taking advantage of the gaping hole in the market that currently needs filling. Coming Recession Sparks Demand For Gold, Coronavirus However Cripples Supply At the start of March, coronavirus concerns reached peak panic, causing a massive selloff of all asset types, including gold, Bitcoin, and the stock market. Records were broken for the steepest collapse in decades across most assets, while newer, speculative assets like Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies were decimated in the collapse. Gold, however, absorbed the impact better than most assets and has already reclaimed highs prior to the…Apr 2, 2020

Crypto-literate public accountants are concerned their clients might face Internal Revenue Service (IRS) audits and penalties for underpaying taxes on their crypto holdings, a new survey finds. Cryptocurrency accounting service provider Blox and tax software developer Sovos conducted a survey of roughly 45 Certified Public Accountants (CPAs) familiar with crypto, finding that the majority believe their clients might face penalties for misreporting their tax liabilities from their holdings of assets like bitcoin. Indeed, many of these respondents believe their clients and other crypto holders likely owe back taxes. “Crypto clients are still alarmingly unaware of how to handle crypto reporting and tax liabilities,” the report generated by the companies said. According to the survey, the respondents overwhelmingly believe that the U.S. will have the most stringent crackdown on crypto taxes over the next year, followed by China. Zero percent of respondents expect Russia to have the toughest crackdown on crypto taxes. Known unknowns Part of the issue for taxpayers might be that these individuals still aren’t sure how to file their taxes. Calculating cost-basis has long been an issue for…Mar 31, 2020
Bitcoin lost its support at $7,000 earlier today, subsequently leading XRP and virtually all other major altcoins to post notable retraces that have cut into the gains incurred as a result of the recent market-wide uptrend. It now appears that XRP is at risk of seeing even further downside due to its key near-term support level taking a “bashing” as bulls struggle to defend against intense selling pressure. This could also be further perpetuated by Bitcoin’s current weakness as it hovers just slightly above its critical near-term support at $6,800. Crypto Market Sees Intense Retrace as XRP Plunges to Key Support At the time of writing XRP is trading down just under 5% at its current price of $0.184, which is right around its key support that has been established throughout the past few weeks. Today’s decline has led the crypto down from daily highs of $0.195 that were set just a few hours ago, with the decline coming about in tandem by that seen by the benchmark cryptocurrency. Bitcoin previously gained what appeared to be a stable foothold within…Apr 21, 2020

In an exclusive interview with Cointelegraph, Anthony “Pomp” Pompliano explained why Bitcoin is the best asset to preserve wealth in the upcoming future. Pompliano reconfirmed his bullishness on Bitcoin, revealing he bought more if it right after the latest market crash, when most investors sought refuge in the U.S. dollar. When asked whether there may be more investment-worthy cryptocurrencies on the market, Pomp pointed out that “money is a belief system, and until now the market believes that Bitcoin is more valuable than everything else”. The halving can’t be priced-in Discussing the possible impact of the imminent Bitcoin halving on prices, Pompliano said that it is impossible for this event to be priced-in, since among Bitcoin holders there is no 100% consensus on the meaning of this event and its impact on Bitcoin’s value. Also, he said, there will be new buyers before and after the halving, who aren’t even aware of the event. That is why, he thinks that “within the 18 months post-halving, we’ll see an explosion in the US dollar price [of Bitcoin]”. “The end of the…Apr 9, 2020
