Crucial Ethereum Price Fractal Predicts Surge Toward $430



Ethereum has seen weak price action over the past few days despite strength in the Bitcoin price, which has managed to hold above the low-$13,000s for an extended period of time.

Ethereum currently trades for $383, down nearly 3% in the past 24 hours. This makes it one of the worst-performing crypto assets in the top 20 by market capitalization. Despite this price action, analysts remain optimistic about the leading cryptocurrency.

The below chart was shared below just recently, showing that Ethereum’s price action over the past few weeks.

Ethereum Could Surge Toward $430: Analyst

The key analysis in the chart is that Ethereum’s price action over the past week looks eerily similar to that seen in the middle of October, during a period of consolidation around $370.

This simple fractal analysis indicates that the cryptocurrency could move toward $430 and beyond in the coming days.

Both periods highlighted in the chart have extremely similar price action, suggesting that a similar trend will play out once again.

Reserve Bank of Australia Mention & Other Fundamentals

Ethereum has fundamental trends implying further growth is on the horizon, at least on a longer-term basis.

Australia’s central bank, the Reserve Bank of Australia, just announced a new partnership for central bank digital currencies. This will involve ConsenSys, the Ethereum-focused development studio, and an Ethereum-based technology:

“The Reserve Bank today announced that it is partnering with Commonwealth Bank, National Australia Bank, Perpetual and ConsenSys Software, a blockchain technology company, on a collaborative project to explore the potential use and implications of a wholesale form of central bank digital currency (CBDC) using distributed ledger technology (DLT)… The project will involve the development of a proof-of-concept (POC) for the issuance of a tokenised form of CBDC that can be used by wholesale market participants for the funding, settlement and repayment of a tokenised syndicated loan on an Ethereum-based DLT platform.”

The Reserve Bank of Australia’s interest in the technology of Ethereum has been echoed by other entities, both corporate and governmental.

For one, Santander Bank, a prominent Spanish bank, settled a small bond on Ethereum.

Many see the blockchain as an important step forward in the efficiency and transparency of financial applications. That’s probably why the Ethereum decentralized finance space has seen such a rapid increase over the past few months.

Bitcoin hits $35K after Biden reveals infrastructure deal, Paraguay proposes BTC bill




Bitcoin (BTC)  price received a boost as news that lawmakers in Paraguay plan to present a bill to make BTC legal tender spread across Twitter. Shortly after the unconfirmed news surfaced on Twitter, Bitcoin price rallied to $35,289 before slightly pulling back below the key short-term resistance level. 

While the cryptocurrency Fear and Greed Index still indicates a sentiment of Extreme Fear, it’s worth noting that the measure has risen from 14 on June 23 to 22 on June 24 as traders begin to view the drop below $29,000 and Bitcoin’s rising open interest as signs that the current corrective phase may have ended.

While traders’ sentiment may have improved slightly, Cointelegraph analyst Marcel Pechman suggested that investors could be waiting for the $6 billion in Bitcoin and Ether (ETH) quarterly futures and options to expire on June 25 before making a more decisive move.

Stocks reach new record highs, altcoins rally

The crypto market wasn’t the only market to rally today. Traditional markets also rose to new highs after U.S. President Joe Biden revealed that he had reached an agreement on a $953 billion bipartisan infrastructure spending plan with the Senate.

Following the announcement, the S&P 500 and Nasdaq each rallied to new record intraday highs and closed the day up 24.65 points and 97.98 points respectively, while the Dow gained more than 322 points on the day.

As one would expect, altcoins also surged higher as Bitcoin price and traditional markets moved higher. Ether (ETH) rallied back above the psychologically important $2,000 level, while Tron (TRX) and Celo gained 26% and 28% respectively. CELO’s move appears to be driven by the listing of its Celo Euro (cEUR) stablecoin on KuCoin exchange.
