Ethereum Eyes Consolidation
At the time of writing, Ether exchanges hands at $2,150 after recovering from the support established at $2,100. The 50 Simple Moving Average (SMA) also contributed to the support. For now, this buyer congestion zone is key to the uptrend.
The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) indicator suggests that Ethereum has settled for sideways trading action. This indicator identifies positions to buy the dip and sell the top. As the MACD line cross above the signal line, traders are advised to buy. On the other hand, crossing under the signal line implies that ETH price is falling fast into the bears’ hands.
Meanwhile, the MACD levels at 24, hinting at the trend remaining sideways in the short term. Traders should look out for the direction the indicator makes to trade Ethereum properly. However, the MACD cannot be used on its own and needs the support of other indicators or technical patterns.
