ETH’s Bearish State Could Trigger a Breakout: Glassnode Founders

Like other cryptocurrencies, Ethereum (ETH) has been experiencing a bearish phase. One undeniable reason for the downturn is the widespread selling pressure that ETH was going through.

Amidst this bearish sentiment, notable figures in the industry, such as the founders of Glassnode, have weighed in with their insights. The founders Yann Allemann and Jan Happel, who share the X (formerly Twitter) handle Negentropic, suggest that ETH’s ongoing selling pressure might be setting the stage for a potential breakout.

Time for ETH to Breakout?

For Allemann and Happel, there was a key pivot at $1,680, which could lay the ground for the breakout. Also, the post added that the oversold state of ETH could attract long-term buyers while maintaining that ETH was not yet out of bearish control.

After falling briefly under $1,600, ETH rebounded. At the time of writing, the altcoin was trading at $1,676. However, the recovery is not yet full-blown as ETH’s attempt to push into $1,700 was rejected at $1,685 on the daily timeframe.

For ETH to rise above $1,700, bulls need to neutralize the dominance of sellers by instigating demand around $1,675. But if the price drops back to $1,632, the level may act as a support for ETH, and buying pressure could drive an uptrend.

Another crucial indicator to consider and may influence ETH’s trajectory is the Relative Strength Index (RSI). From the daily chart, bulls seem to have targeted the RSI value at 21.85. This resulted in a bounce to 32.86.

Although ETH was still oversold, bulls’ ability to sustain buying pressure would be instrumental in shifting ETH away from the bearish momentum.

Buyers and Sellers in a Tug of War

As for the Chaikin Money Flow (CMF), the 4-hour chart showed that it had reached the ceiling of the negative territory. At -0.04, the CMF signaled weakness in the market due to the selling pressure.

For the CMF to confirm a breakout, the indicator needs to move into the positive region while ETH breaks through the support and resistance lines. Thus, if the CMF moves above the zero line, then ETH might cross into the $1,700 region.

However, ETH’s potential could also depend on the Directional Movement Index (DMI). As of this writing the +DMI (green) and -DMI (red) were almost at loggerheads. Furthermore, the Average Directional Index (ADX) was up high at 42.58.

Since the ADX (yellow) indicated a strong directional movement, large buy orders may send ETH much above $1,700. But for this to happen, buyers need to win the struggle with sellers.
