A British bank report suggests a bullish bias for ETH

The price of ETH found support and reversed its course after a report published by the British bank, Standard Chartered, indicated a bullish bias for ETH in the future. The British multinational banking and financial services giant Standard Chartered published a report named The Ethereum Investor Guide written by the analysts at the bank.

Ethereum average network fee surged by 300%

Meanwhile, Ethereum saw its average network fees surge by 300% on Tuesday. It’s mainly caused by the market collapse and a minting event of a hyped project. An NFT project named ‘The Sevens’ had its presale on the same day El Salvador made Bitcoin its legal tender on Sept. 7. 

Given the presale of The Sevens, many users reported tremendously high gas fees while processing the transaction. A lot of them also complained that they lost gas so much that the transaction failed anyway.

The increased number of transactions on exchanges in an attempt to sell holdings and avoid further losses in the aftermath of the market’s latest flash crash increased the number of requests for transactions, driving up ETH fees. It happens every time there is a sudden move in either direction.

Ethereum Price Prediction – Daily Technical Analysis: Fibonacci Retracement 

The Ethereum price prediction remains bullish above the 3,385 level. In the 4-hours timeframe, Ethereum is likely to face immediate resistance at 3,612 levels. A 61.8% Fibonacci correction level is extending this particular resistance level. Furthermore, the closing of candles below this level suggests strong odds of a selling trend in Ethereum prices.

Previously, Ethereum was trading in an oversold zone. However, now it has come out of the oversold zone, and it is heading towards completing the 61.8% Fibonacci correction level.

On the 4-hours timeframe, the 50-period exponential moving average is likely to provide resistance around 3,700 levels. At the same time, the leading technical tool, Stochastic RSI, is entering the buying zone. 

On the bearish side, it’s likely to gain immediate support at the 3,384 level. A bearish breakout below this level is likely to create additional room for selling until the next support level of 3,232. 

Furthermore, the violation of the 3,232 level could create room for selling until the next support level of 3,010. The Forex trading market participants should look for a sell-stop below the $3424.53 level. The initial target remains at $3,384 and $3,232. Alternatively, traders can place a buy trade at or above the $3,425 level. All the best.
