Ethereum price analysis: ETH/USD embraces support at 100 SMA after the double top pattern; ERC20-based tokens get a boost from the new Radar Relay trading platform


  • ETH/USD upside is currently limited at $530, besides the sellers are battling to regain control.
  • The trading on Radar relay is peer-to-peer; users use the wallet-to-wallet trading feature.

The crypto market has survived a hack attack on Bithumb exchange. The hackers, however, disappeared with at least $31 million in digital assets. The market has kept steady muting the reaction to the news of the attack. It is vital to note that Bithumb exchange is the largest exchange platform in South Korea.

Ethereum price has been supported by the 100 SMA in spite of the brief declines that took place after the opening of the session on Wednesday. ETH/USD is currently changing hands at $522 and supported at $520, although weakly. The price completed the double top pattern explored in the analysis on Tuesday supported at $530, made another attempt at the resistance at $540 before giving in to the Bears.

The upside is currently limited at $530, besides the sellers are battling to regain control. The gap between the 50 SMA and the 100 SMA is increasing signaling for more selling entries in the near-term. The stochastic on the other hand has dropped below the 50 mark. The bullish trendline will halt downside movement marginally above the key support seen at $500.
