Also, the price failed to break $188 and $190 resistance. However, it broke the $185 resistance and is trading at $186.57, at press time. Prices $188 and $190 are important levels for the bulls if they manage to take the prices over $190, the next key resistance levels are at $200 and $205. In case, the price doesn’t rise further, the prices may decline below $185 and find support near the $183 level.

A Look At Ethereum’s Volatility in Q3

The previous month, a research firm ExoAlpha released a report highlighting the plight of the top 3 coins and how they shaped the market in the third quarter.

In the third quarter, Ethereum displayed 82.8% volatility. The volatility stood at 89.7% at the end of the second quarter. During the third quarter, its volatility decreased from a high in July of 98% to a low in September at 79.4%. Over the quarter, the volatility of Ethereum has been more than 4 times higher than the volatility of the S&P 500 or Gold. In the past 5 years, Ethereum’s volatility was noted to be the maximum in 2016 and 2017. The volatility then was noted to be 200%.

With Istanbul Hard Fork round the corner, it is likely that Ethereum prices soon witness a rally and establish an all-time high. The hard fork will reduce gas costs, increase compatibility with Zcash, enhance scalability and introduce versatility in contracts and will bring Ethereum closer to version 2.0.
