Ethereum (ETH) Closes Prior Hour Up 0.42%; Heads Down For the 2nd Consecutive Day

The Hourly View for ETH

Last Updated January 2, 2021, 02:048 GMT

Currently, ETH’s price is up $3.06 (0.42%) from the hour prior. This is the 2nd hour in a row ETH has seen its price head up. As for the trend on the hourly timeframe, we see the clearest trend on the 20 hour timeframe. Regarding moving averages, it should first be noted that price has crossed the 100 and 20 hour moving averages, resulting in them so that price is now turning above them. The moving averages on the hourly timeframe suggest a choppiness in price, as the 20, 50, 100 and 200 are all in a mixed alignment — meaning the trend across timeframes is inconsistent, indicating a potential opportunity for rangebound traders.
