Ethereum price prediction: ETH/USD eyes $300 – Confluence Detector

  • Ethereum spikes 57% in the last week and 122% in the last 90 days.
  • Ethereum is currently valued at $239.17 and is trending lower 9.55% on Friday.

Ethereum lagged behind Bitcoin’s rally in the past several weeks. However, the delay tactic finally bore fruits as the cryptocurrency revamped the uptrend at the beginning of this week easily becoming one of the best performing major cryptos on the market. In just seven days, ETH/USD has seen a 57% side while in the last 90 days it has achieved gains of about 122%.

Comparing Ethereum and Bitcoin in the last 90 days, we see Ethereum having outpaced Bitcoin in performance. However, it is still lagging far behind Bitcoin in terms of market capitalization. Ethereum currently ranks in the market’s second spot with a market capitalization of $25 billion and a trading volume of $17 billion.

The daily chart shows Ethereum trading above the 200 Exponential Moving Average (EMA) as well as the moving average (50-day Simple Moving Average and the 100 SMA) despite the correction from the 2019 highs formed at $281.45. Ethereum is currently valued at $239.17 and is trending lower 9.55% on Friday.
