Remarks



Ether is near its 2018 low of $102.36 which printed on November 26. This low is not startling as Ethereum has seen price erosion for some months. Since the encouraging rally of April 2018 its been mostly a downhill affair for ether.


Ether has experienced a largely bearish market for over seven months. $XRP assumed second market cap overall, and stayed there. Some of this loss can be attributed to the failure of third party ether based tokens. Unfortunately these ether based ICO’s failed to garner long term investment buyers, but gained and lost temporary short term trading interest instead. Compounding the problem is the subsequent delisting of failed coins, leaving an illiquid state.


Bitcoin has also been pushing the price of ethereum down, disproportionately, over the recent weeks.


Today’s support levels are taken from Coinmarketcap 2017 data. The price is so low there is no Binance data for the current support level. This however can also be construed as a reason to buy.


Overall and taking the long term view, it is the author’s opinion that notwithstanding ether’s difficulties it is currently oversold. Today’s market doesn’t appear to hold the same view, as the short term technicals are mostly bearish.
