Ethereum Price Prediction: Can $1,000 offer enough support to turn around ETH downtrend?


  • Analyst who predicted the bear market of 2018 believes Bitcoin and Ethereum prices are very close to their bottom. 
  • Kevin O’Leary of Shark Tank detailed his crypto holdings include Ethereum and scaling solution MATIC. 
  • Analysts argue that a drop below $1,070 could push Ethereum prices lower. 

UPDATE: Ethereum price predictions like the one made by crypto Twitter analyst Smart Contracter, claiming that Ethereum price is nearing its bottom, have become a high-risk exercise, as the cryptocurrency market continues its downtrend. Despite ETH bulls being able to defend the psychological $1,000 level on an eventful Wednesday, the Federal Reserve meeting outcome was not kind to risk-on assets like cryptos, and Ethereum price is again trending south on Thursday. The second-biggest cryptocurrency is down about 10% on the day at the time of this update (10.30 GMT), trading around the $1,100 mark. Hedge funds like Three Arrows Capital facing huge liquidations and potential insolvency have some bears licking their chops on more potential losses, so Ethereum bulls will really need to show up and finally buy some dips to avoid a fall below the crucial $1,000 level.

The cryptocurrency analyst known for accurately predicting crypto bear markets believes Ethereum is close to printing cycle lows. Analysts believe Ethereum price could continue to plummet lower. 

Ethereum price could hit bottom soon?

The crypto strategist Smart Contracter accurately called the bottom of Bitcoin and Ethereum during the 2018 bear market. The analyst is now back with his prediction for the two largest cryptocurrencies and believes BTC and ETH are close to their cycle low. 

The analyst told his 208,000 followers on Twitter that Ethereum has gone through a capitulation phase and is now trading at a level that offers strong support. 

Smart Contracter is quoted in his recent tweet:

BTC and ETH are both at their weekly respective 200-week moving averages. Bottom is very, very close in my opinion, maybe marginal new lows on lower timeframes but this is the spot to start accumulating in my opinion. This is pure unadulterated capitulation.

Ethereum price drop below $1,070 could push the altcoin to new low
