Ethereum Likely Set Its Local Low for the Year as Buyers Defend $500

Ethereum showed signs of immense strength today. The cryptocurrency surged to $ 550 as bulls attempt to erase recent losses caused by the recent market-wide sell-off.

This is because Bitcoin is also showing some signs of strength: the benchmark cryptocurrency is moving towards $ 18,000 after its recent decline that brought it to lows of $ 16,400.

Bitcoin is a firm leader in Ethereum and the rest of the market. The strong reaction both assets have seen after hitting their local lows seems like a bullish sign.

An analyst now notes that Ethereum is likely to see a significant uptrend in the short term, with its strength showing no signs of slowing as the bulls move to regain control of their trend.

He believes that $ 500 will prove to be a long-term local low for crypto and that it won’t start trending higher from here until the end of the year.

It is also possible that between these lows and its current price level it will enter an accumulation phase that will support the uptrend in early 2021.

Ethereum is showing signs of strength as buyers target $ 600

At the time of writing, Ethereum is trading just under 5% at its current price of $ 543. This is a notable rebound from recent lows of $ 490 at the end of the recent sell-off.

The passionate bulls defense of $ 500 suggests that this is a strong level of support that could further support price action in the coming weeks.

As long as it consolidates above $ 500 and confirms this as a strong level of support, there is a strong chance it will continue to move higher.
