Ethereum [ETH] might have caught a break from bears due to formation of ‘Golden Cross’

Ether, more commonly known as Ethereum, is the world’s second largest cryptocurrency and it might have turned bullish due to the initiation of the ‘Golden Cross’ in the daily chart. Golden Cross, is when the 50-day simple moving average crosses above the 200-day simple moving average, which indicates that the price has turned bullish and that the cryptocurrency has bottomed.

Historically, Ethereum’s last Golden Cross took place in February 2017, when the price of ETH was ~$10; the price after this cross was bumped to $1,600, which was a meteoric rise of 15,000%. As bullish as this sounds, this might not be the good news that the crypto community is hoping for, as the ‘Golden Cross’ isn’t absolute and there are times when the crossover could be a fakeout. Crossover fakeouts had occurred for Bitcoin in 2014.

The weekly chart for Ethereum has been consistently forming higher highs since 2019, which is a bullish indication. The MACD indicator and the RSI indicators are both indicating a steady rise since 2019.

All aboard the ‘Speculation Train’

If another meteoric rise is to be expected from the crypto ecosystem, the price has to undergo a parabolic rise. The price of Ethereum at press time was $174 and had a market cap of $18 billion; assuming approximately 10,000% increase [instead of the 15,000% rise], the price of Ethereum would reach approximately $8,000 by March 2020.

A Reddit user @alkalinegs commented:

“if you look at the last golden cross early 2017 it took a few days till something happend. death cross 2018 even resulted in a bulltrap. -> dont expect an immediate reaction.”

Quite a few people use the exponential moving averages and disagree with the use of Simple Moving Averages, which is opinionated. Another Reddit user, @DeliciousPayDay commented:

“I strongly disagree. SMA 200 is more important and everyone in crypto looks at it. After breaking the 200MA at $151 ETH went straight to $180 before being sold off, and bounced directly off the 200MA the next day turning resistance into support. The 50/200 golden cross just happened on the SMA and the last time that happened ETH went from $12 to $1400.”

I am a believer of the HODL philosophy because we are still in the nascent stage of blockchain technology. Although we are in a bear market now, my outlook on the adoption and growth of blockchain solutions remains unchanged. Blockchain transactions has been growing exponentially and demand for cryptocurrency like Bitcoin [BTC], Ethereum [ETH], Ripple [XRP], Litecoin [LTC] and other Altcoins will only continue to grow exponentially in the next five to ten years.
