Ethereum Exchange Supply Reaches New Low

Recent on-chain data shows that the percentage of Ether supply present on exchanges has set new lows of around 14%. Per CryptoQuant, the ETH supply present on exchanges has been going down for a while now. The “percentage supply on exchanges” is an indicator that shows the share of the total Ethereum supply stored in wallets of all exchanges.

Generally, this supply present on exchanges is said to be the selling supply of ETH, and so if the indicator’s value goes up, it means there is a higher number of coins in the available sell supply. Due to the supply-demand dynamics of the market, this kind of trend can prove to be bearish for the cryptocurrency’s price.

On the other hand, if the metric’s value moves down, it implies the available supply of Ethereum has reduced. Prolonged such a trend can create a supply shock in the market, which can turn out to be bullish for the coin’s price.

The percent ETH supply on exchanges has shown a steady downtrend during the entire year so far. Currently, the value of the indicator sits around 14%, a new low. At the start of 2021, the metric’s value was about 21%. 

In May, when the price of Ether was at similar levels as now, the metric’s value was around 18%, a sizeable difference. 

Ethereum Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels

Looking at the Ethereum price chart, we can see that ETH has been extremely bullish during the current session. If buyers can retain control of the session, we could see ETH push past the resistance at $4709.
