Ethereum (ETH/USD) Outlook – Positive and Challenging in Equal Measures

Ethereum Is Predicted To Break New ATH In The Near Future, Really?

Ethereum is starting to move further higher, after slumping between November 2021 and February 2022, with a series of higher lows underpinning the move higher. The positive tailwinds from these higher lows have now pushed ETH/USD to the lower boundary of an important zone of resistance built from a cluster of previous swing lows. This zone, between $3,050 and $3,410, will likely take time to break fully and may see Ethereum trade sideways to slightly higher over the coming weeks in a ‘two steps forward, one step back’ pattern. If Ethereum breaks out of this zone to the topside, the multi-month series of lower highs will have been broken convincingly, adding further positive momentum to the move. The 50-day simple moving average adds a layer of protection to any short-term sell-off.

The ETH/BTC spread also highlights Ethereum’s return to favor. The second-largest coin by market cap is currently outperforming Bitcoin with the spread bouncing off a prior horizontal low around 0.0645. This rebound, and the break of the previous downtrend, look to be consolidating before a potential move back to the February 3 spike high at 0.07512. The 50-day sma again acts as first-line support. A long way to go before the December 9 high is threatened, but a target nonetheless.

    • US Dollar (DXY) Daily Price and Analysis US Q1 GDP may stall the greenback’s advance. A 20-year high nears for the US dollar. The multi-month US dollar rally continues with the greenback printing a fresh high today ahead of the first look at US Q1 GDP at 12.30 GMT. The US dollar basket (DXY) has been boosted by renewed weakness in the Euro and the Japanese Yen, as investors move from lower-yielding to higher-yielding currencies, while safe-haven flows continue to benefit the greenback. The US growth release later in the session is expected to show a sharp slowdown from the robust Q4 figure of 6.9%. The markets are currently pricing in growth of just 1% for the first three months of this year, with the slowdown mainly due to a reduction in inventory accrual over the quarter. This release is unlikely to move the greenback, unless there is a large miss or beat, as the Fed believe that 2022 US growth will be robust enough to let them tighten monetary policy sharply without damaging the economy. The latest US Core PCE data – the Fed’s preferred inflation reading – is released on Friday and this may have more effect on the US dollar than today’s GDP data. For all market moving economic data and events, see the DailyFX Calendar. The ongoing US dollar rally has been aided by weakness across a range of G7 currencies including the Euro, the Japanese Yen, and the British Pound. The Euro continues to battle with lowly growth expectations, exacerbated by energy concerns, the British Pound is mired by weak economic data, while the Japanese Yen is in freefall as the BoJ continues with its ultra-loose monetary policy.   The US dollar continues to press higher and looks set to break above 103.96, the March 2020 high. Above here the US dollar would be back at levels last seen nearly two decades ago. The March resistance will likely hold in the short-term, especially with month-end portfolio rebalancing at the end of the week, but US dollar strength is set to continue in the months ahead.
