Technical Analysis of ETH/USD for 28/04/2020:

Crypto Industry News:

EthereumPrice.org has released a new tool to calculate how much ETH can be earned by stacking coins under the new network consensus model. The Ethereum 2.0 calculator has many configurable settings that simulate different conditions and stacking variables. Users can customize many network (variable) settings that have a big impact on how the reward is calculated.

For example, a change in the size of ETHs stacked in the network from 1% to 10% means a difference in earnings between 5% or 15% (each year). Another factor that will affect the award on an annual basis is, for example, the lifetime of the node (validator) itself.

The tool calculates potential profits from 10 years of ETH stacking as well as each year. It will also calculate ROI (return on investment) in a given time. To view the value of their bid, users can choose from many fiat functional currencies, ETH in USD, EUR, GBP, JPY and others.

The calculator is currently in public beta. The current interface should be treated more as an educational device than a means for practical calculations. However, this gives an idea of how important staking will become part of the 'new Ethereum' ecosystem.

Technical Market Outlook:

The ETH/USD bears has pushed the price out of the Falling Wedge pattern and Ethereum made a new local low at the level of $188.86. There is a clear bearish divergence between the price and momentum indicator that supports the short-term bearish outlook, so the level of $188.86 might not be the target level and the ETH/USD rate can drop even further towards the next target at $178.25. The key short-term technical resistance is still located at the level of $198.72 and only a clear breakout above this level will open the road towards the $209.09 target.

Weekly Pivot Points:

WR3 - $243.80

WR2 - $220.39

WR1 - $211.16

Weekly Pivot - $187.55

WS1 - $172.98

WS2 - $155.34

WS3 - $144.09

Trading Recommendations:

The fear of the coronavirus consequences is very strong among the global investors and it rules on the financial markets. So far the global investors are not so keen to invest in cryptocurrency, because they are being perceived as risky assets. The larger time frame trend on Ethereum remains down and as long as the level of $214.67 is not violated, all rallies will be treated as a counter-trend corrective moves. This is why the short positions are now more preferred.
