I go on my series of cryptocurrency price predictions and today, I’d like to update ETHBTC trading scenario.
As you see from the chart above, Ethereum is performing not that worse than other altcoins that are DApp-platforms. I compared it with the largest coins of this class, like EOS, ETH, XEM , NEO.
Moreover, if you compare Ethereum with the altcoins that have always served only as payment means, like Bitcoin Cash or Litecoin, you won’t find any substantial difference between BCH and ETH trends, and the crypto “silver” is preforming far worse than its peers.
This fact makes me doubt that Ethereum weakness results from sales among ICO founders, launched on the Ethereum platform.
Basically, the major reason for the altcoins drawdown is simple, being nothing else but the capital outflow from the altcoin to the cryptocurrency market.
In the ETHBTC chart above, you see that with a decline in Ethereum trading , Bitcoin is increasing. Besides, the Bitcoin share is likely to continue growing. You see, that the downward is broken and the tendency of Bitcoin declining

This scenario suggests nothing but that the altcoins will grow weaker in relation to /x/66aVr7ly/coin.#
(forecast dated August 14)
Two weeks ago, I wrote the ETHBTC forecast, where I suggested that Ethereum should gradually fall down to the channel’s bottom border at 0.02863 BTC (see ETHBTC chart above).
(the current market situation, compared with the forecast dated August 14)
Finally, the present results are displayed in the chart above. The forecast, made two weeks ago, seems to be going as expected. To make sure it is relevant, I suggest analyzing all-round market view and revise the ETHBTC current state.
In ETHBTC monthly chart above, you see that the last August is very close to the point of control in the . It provides bulls with a chance to take rest and retrace the price a little.
However, the general situation in the is extremely bearish:
• The last has a long black body.
• The trading is increasing on the price fall.
• The ETHBTC ticker is below channel’s central line.
• 0.232 Fibo from the last growth wave has been met.
Finally, I think the target at 0.0289 BTC to be relevant. It now matters how the ticker will go to it.
The ETHBTC weekly chart also indicates the situation:
• The last week closed lower than the previous low.
• oscillator is directed downwards.
• is at the bottom of oversold zone.
• is in the negative zone (the thin green line).
• No divergences or convergences.
• ETHBTC ticker is below the control point of the .
All of this is the further evidence that Ethereum will continue trading down.
Unfortunately, there are no reversal signals in the ETHBTC . indicator has been slightly up and the in the balance zone; but these signals are rather typical for a sideways trend than for an uptrend.
As it is clear form four-hour price charts during my experiment, Renko charts proves its main function and filters off all the minor sideways price movements very well.
By means of , I adjusted the box size for ETHBTC so that there are hardly any false signals. It is 0.0008 BTC
Finally, you see the oppositely directed indicators in the Japanese chart (on the left). There, indicates price growth, but the moving averages suggest its drop . The same is in the Line Break chart (in the middle).
The only tool that doesn’t change the suggested Ethereum price direction is the Renko chart (on the right). You see, its moving averages and moving averages are sending sell signals.
The combined analysis of all three charts suggests the following:
Renko chart indicates that ETHBTC ticker is trading down.
Oppositely-directed indicators in the Japanese chart and in the Line Break chart suggest that bears are weak at the moment and the price rebound is possible.
Summing up all the above, the most likely ETHBTC trading scenario looks like this:
• ETHBTC is trading down in the global .
• On the short-term scope, the price may rebound towards the trading channel’s top border at 0.044 BTC .
• The nearest supports (targets for the ) are at 0.038 BTC and 0.036 BTC .
• The assumed low of the is at 0,028 BTC ;
• I expect ETHBTC to hit the low on September 21.
That is my ETHBTC trading scenario. Go on following the rate and staying informed. I wish my Ethereum price predictions are useful for you!
I wish you good luck and good profits!
