Ethereum Price Prediction: ETH/USD rally to $430 overdue – Confluence Detector

  • Ethereum in consolidation as it faces the toughest resistance at $239 as the confluence detector tool.
  • ERC-20 tokens market capitalization surpassed that of Ethereum indicating increased blockchain adoption.
  • Ethereum is poised for a rally according to a cryptocurrency analyst’s highlighted factors.

Ethereum is still stuck in consolidation under $240. Support is provided by the 50-day SMA and the key ascending trendline. The technical picture is likely to remain unchanged based on applied technical indicators like the RSI, the MACD and the volume indicator.

The MACD is holding tightly to the midline (0.00). It has been pivotal in the same position since the beginning of July. Consequently, the RSI is moving sideways above the average. Unlike the MACD which is flat at the midline, the RSI has a bearish inclination. In other words, sellers are gaining traction in the short term.
