Analyst Expects Ethereum to See Massive Gains as It Taps “Final” Demand Zone

Spread the love
  • Ethereum’s price action has underperformed that of Bitcoin as of late, which is a common trend amongst all the major altcoins
  • There’s no question that BTC’s ongoing rally is creating some tailwinds for altcoins, although it has not been enough to spark any parabolic ETH movement
  • This has caused the cryptocurrency to flash some major signs of weakness against its Bitcoin trading pair, which is now sitting within a key long-term demand zone
  • One analyst is referring to this as the “final” demand zone for the crypto, which may mean that it will begin building momentum from here

Ethereum has seen relatively lackluster price action over the past few days despite Bitcoin’s massive momentum.

Most analysts seem to believe that it will eventually gain enough momentum to match Bitcoin’s gains and exceed them.

For this to occur, the crypto needs to surmount the selling pressure laced throughout the upper-$600 region.

One trader is now pointing to a “final” demand zone that ETH has reached against BTC, indicating that it is bottoming out and ready to rally further.

Ethereum Struggles to Match Bitcoin’s Immense Momentum 

At the time of writing, Ethereum is trading down just under 1% at its current price of $640. This is around the price at which it has been trading throughout the past day.

Yesterday morning it was able to rally as high as $677 before it lost all its momentum and saw a rapid decline to lows of $628.

Although it has been able to rally off these lows, it still shows some signs of weakness as its Bitcoin trading pair also hovers at a crucial last-ditch support region.

Trader: ETHBTC Reaches Final Demand Zone

One trader believes that the weakness Ethereum has seen against Bitcoin has led the ETHBTC pair to reach a key demand zone.

He contends that this will act as a long-term base of support for it to grow upon.

“ETH- 3D: Eventually soon we will start trending again on the BTC pairing. If I had to bet, this will be one of the last times we really visit this demand zone, and I don’t see ETH dropping below.”

The coming days should shed some light on where the entire market will trend in the mid-term. For Ethereum, it must begin holding parity with Bitcoin in the near-term so that it doesn’t see further losses on its ETHBTC pair.
