Ethereum Price (ETH/USD) Daily Chart

Ethereum Daily July 25

Apart from the technical chart pattern, the parabolic SAR flipped from negative to positive on July 23 adding credence to the bullish outlook. This bullish thesis is further accentuated by the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) on the same daily chart. Note that traders responded to the bullish crypto signal when the MACD line 12-day Exponential Moving Average (EMA) crossed over the 23-day EMA. The uptrend will gain more momentum once the MACD crosses the zero line into the positive region.

Note that a daily closure above the immediate Ethereum price barrier at $2,36 is crucial to sustaining the anticipated upward breakout.

Can the ETH Breakout Be Sustained?

Note that the flattening of the Relative Strength Index’s (RSI) indicates that the bullish momentum is slowing down. A cross over the midline towards the oversold region will trigger more well orders. If this happens, ETH’s bullish thesis will be invalidated.

Closing the day under the 50-day SMA at $2,86 will also curtail the recovery efforts and trigger another sell-off, resulting in another correction towards the $2,000 psychological level and $1,726 respectively.
