Ethereum (ETH) Closes Last Hour Up $10.43; 2 Day Up Streak Ended

The Hourly View for ETH

Last Updated June 2, 2021, 04:017 GMT

Currently, Ethereum’s price is up $10.43 (0.4%) from the hour prior. Ethereum has seen its price go up 4 out of the past 5 hours, thus creating some compelling opportunities for bulls. If you’re a trend trader, consider that the strongest clear trend on the hourly chart exists on the 100 hour timeframe. Of note is that the 20 and 200 hour changed directions on ETH; they are now pointing up. 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.

    Why I’m Bullish ETHπŸš€ = Layer 2 is here, it’s awesome (this summer)πŸš€πŸš€ = EIP 1559, fees go to ETH holders (July)πŸš€πŸš€πŸš€ = PoS Merge, issuance down, goes to stakers (Q1 2022)DeFi goes mainstream, Ethereum scales, ETH becomes ultra sound money…all in the next 9 months.

  • From AXIlIXA:

    $ETH went from $80 to $4k in a years time.If you don’t think $LINK can make a move to even a fraction of that scale, then you are mistaken. I understand the differences between Ethereum and Chainlink but also recognize the similarities of a large scale network effect they share

  • From santiagoroel:

    Could DeFi be built on Bitcoin? Maybe. Is DeFi being built on Ethereum? Yes.The first is trying to predict the future. The second is understanding the present. Investing in the present when others are too focused chasing future narratives creates asymmetric opportunities.
