Ethereum Price Flips 20-day From Support To Resistance

The moving average convergence/divergence (MACD) in the 4-hour price chart also shows us that the market momentum is getting increasingly bearish. This could trigger a further crash.

Fundstrat: Ethereum Price Will Reach $10,500

Despite the current correction, the long-term price potential looks pretty promising. The strategists at Fundstrat Global Advisors believe that Ether (ETH) could surge sevenfold (to $10,500), as per a Bloomberg report. 

Strategist David Grider said that one of the main reasons for a possible Ethereum price surge is the Ethereum blockchain's fame for decentralized finance (DeFi) applications. The price predictions are also based on Ethereum’s progress towards a network upgrade (ETH 2.0), which will allow it to process more transactions. 

Grider called ETH “the best risk-reward investment play in crypto.” He added that the future of cloud technology might depend on blockchain computing. However, according to him, a few risks include setbacks for the ETH 2.0 network upgrade or an eventual cryptocurrency bear market. 

The analysts also pointed out that decentralized finance (DeFi) is convenient because it enables users to borrow or funds without traditional intermediaries like banking institutions.


Ethereum Price Is Expected To Hit These Levels

With the Ethereum price expected to drop more, it may reach the 50-day SMA ($850). For their part, the buyers need to flip the 20-day SMA from resistance to support to continue their upward climb.
