VIDEO: Ethereum Price Analysis (ETHUSD): September 15, 2022

Last night saw the Ethereum Merge upgrade. Many expected it to be a sell the news event for the second-ranked crypto and that the USD pair fell by more than 10%.

ETHUSD Pair Turns Bearish Post-Merge

Things continue to be bad for Ethereum, and the other major crypto assets. The entire situation is further complicated by the fact that there are also risks to the stock market.

On daily timeframes, ETHUSD could form a head-and-shoulders top just like LMACD crosses bearish. There could be more downside as the Relative Strength Index might find support on a lower trend line.

The Remaining Bullish Signal in Ethereum Weekly Charts

Ether bulls have at least some chance of retaining recent gains by turning to the Ichimoku. Support in the Ichimoku cloud may provide support and help to regain energy. On Ethereum’s weekly charts, The Ichomuku is also trying to locate support over the Tenkansen.

Finding support above the middle Bollinger Band has in the past led to some of the altcoin’s strongest bull trends.

Ether takes on ETHBTC Ratio

While the downside to Ethereum may be caused by ongoing bearish macro conditions, strength in the dollar and continued weakness in Ethereum’s currency pair, Ether also took a plunge on BTC. 

While the ETHUSD pair is looking for support at Ichimoku’s bottom cloud, the BTC pairs is trying to support the cloud above both the daily and weekly frames. Bullish signs are that the weekly cloud bottom had been tested and held. The downtrend resistance line seems to be reactivating and sending Ether plummeting against Bitcoin.

Despite the bearish signals on the ETHBTC pair, the video’s conclusion provides a longer-term bullish outlook you have to see for the full picture.
