Over the past day, the Ethereum cryptocurrency rate (ETH) has grown by 12% and overcame the resistance barrier at $ 220. Therefore, ETH/USD should go up to $ 250 by May 7th.
On April 29, the Ethereum exchange rate exceeded the $ 200 mark, which coincides with 100 SMA. The upward movement accelerated, in connection with this, the asset went up to $ 225. During the pump, the 50% Fib was overcome, fixed during the dump from $ 287 to $ 90 in early March.
Now the market is dominated by an upward trend. The nearest barrier is in the region of $ 240, almost 76.4% Fib. If buyers break through this barrier, the ETH rate will reach $ 250.
The negative scenario should be taken into account if buyers fail to overcome $ 240. As a result of this, there will be a rollback to $ 212. The key support area is located at around $ 200, the next barrier is at $ 185.
If ETH/USD does not go beyond the downtrend that arose in June 2019, then the rate of the coin will not exceed $ 264. An indicator of the upcoming dump will be a sharp drop in the value of the asset by 10% or more. Lower prices by a lower percentage, as a rule, is a false breakdown.
On May 12, the Bitcoin blockchain will be halving. Drawing an analogy with the previous halving of the award in 2016, we can conclude that the price of BTC will decrease after halving until September 2020. Given that the dynamics of changes in the ETH rate almost mirror the Bitcoin chart, in mid-May, there is a high probability of a bearish trend on the Ethereum market, which will last at least until the fall.
