Ethereum Price Analysis
Ethereum’s dip on Thursday last week brought it straight below the $,640 support.
However, the bulls were quick to action and pushed the cryptocurrency’s price back up over this zone.
Ethereum sitting on this support coincides with 1-Inch buying $10 million worth of at this time.
It is safe to assume that their analysts believe $1,640 to be a fairly strong support. Judging by this, 1-Inch may be betting on Ethereum consolidating for a while at $1,640 and then travelling further upwards from here.
In all, you should know that the RSI is in bear territory, and is showing signs of a bearish crossover between MACD and signal line.
This means that ETH can still trade lower.
Ethereum is trading at $1,638 at the time of writing according to CoinMarketCap, and is down by 0.83% over the last day.
1Inch Price Analysis
1Inch’s performance in the charts is a completely different story from Ethereum’s.
One thing you should know is that, unlike Ethereum, 1Inch is generally bearish.
The chart above shows 1-Inch in a descending wedge formation.
However, the general crypto dip last week brought the cryptocurrency into a retest of the wedge’s lower trendline.
This indicates that 1Inch has more of a tendency to go up from here.
Descending wedges are more prone to upside breakouts. This indicates that 1Inch may be headed for better days from here.
1Inch is trading at $0.24 at the time of writing according to CoinMarketCap, and is down by 0.6% at the time of writing.
