Technical Analysis of ETH/USD for February 23, 2021

Crypto Industry News:

The recent correction in the cryptocurrency market has been the largest we've seen in a while. While most digital assets have experienced severe drops, the price of ethereum on the Kraken exchange has experienced a real rollercoaster.

The exchange's trading platform today recorded an event that has certainly made many hearts beat faster. Ethereum, the second largest cryptocurrency, has experienced a flash crash.

In one hour's candle, ETH dropped to $ 700 - a massive 63% drop from the stock market's daily high. The volume of this hourly candle was also significant. A total of 75,500 ETH worth around $ 131.5 million passed from the opening to the closing by traders.

As always in the case of flash crashes, the price rose again after the decline and remained at a level adequate to other averages on other exchanges.

Technical Market Outlook:

The ETH/USD pair has started a sell off recently and the price has fallen to the level of $1,540 (at the time of writing the article). The sell off was dynamic and sudden, so all of the levels will now act as a technical resistance for the market. The next target for bears is seen at the level of $1,478 and $1,438. The nearest technical resistance is located at the level of $1,648. The weekly and monthly time frame trend is still up. The bullish scenario is valid as long as the level of $1,412 is broken.
