Some Ethereum price forecast mentions by other sources

As always, any price forecast or prediction should not be taken as an investment recommendation but rather as an idea for further analysis.

PrevisioniBitcoin has the following Ethereum forecast for April 2019:

“On April 2019 Ethereum may heavily boost its price. We assume as high predictable a mass adoption of this cryptocurrency next months. We expect on April 2019 an Ethereum rise with a strong capitalization and consequently a concrete value per coin increase.” It mentions a minimum price of $142.73.

At this point in time the Ethereum price prediction algorithm is estimating that in 24 hours ETH price will be -2% moving towards $139.01, in 7 days -2.3% on the move to $138.59, in one month +7.1% approaching $151.92 and in 3 months -33.6% targeting $94.19. The Long-term forecast is displaying that Ethereum will be descending in dollar value.” The 4 weeks predicted price is $151.92. Due to today’s sudden spike this price was reached today.

Monthly Ethereum price prediction based on technical analysis

As mentioned at the beginning or our article a sudden spike in Bitcoin had as a result many other cryptocurrencies to follow the very short-term rally as well for about 2 hours. What does our technical analysis based on the daily and monthly Ethereum charts tell us to make an Ethereum price prediction by the end of April 2019?

 Ethereum price prediction for April 2019Ethereum price forecast for April 2019

We will have two scenarios, one optimistic and one pessimistic about the Ethereum and its price forecast for March 2019.

Ethereum price bullish monthly scenario

What caused this breakout today? We simply do not know. The key indicator to monitor is momentum. We could see profit taking but the resistance level at $142.55-$148 has now been broken to the upside. The current price of about $152.18 is above the 50-day exponential moving average and the 20-day exponential moving average. The strength of the trend is still weak, but the dominant trend is now the uptrend as +DI line is above the -DI line looking at the ADX/DMI indicator.  

There is strong support at the price level of $142, 148. We see strong resistance at the price level of $156, $160 and $166. Our Ethereum price prediction for an upside scenario is the range of $160-$165. Any price decline to the support zone of $148- 142 should find support for a bounce to our higher level.  MACD indicator and momentum indicator are both rising, which is also positive for Ethereum.

Ethereum price bearish monthly scenario

What if there is some profit taking and this rally is not sustainable? If this rally does not hold then a retracement back to the support zones of $138-$134 is possible. Due to the sudden spike today, it is hard to ignore it and find some bearish characteristics. Even though, there is strong resistance at the price levels of $152-$156.

As a conclusion our Ethereum price forecast for April 2019 is to wait and see. Do not rush into quick conclusions. If the spike is real and has momentum, then price could move higher in April. If it was an event with no specific reason, then a wait and see mode is safe for now.

    Famous analyst PlanB published an interesting chart showing the four stages of Bitcoin’s market dominance. It appears that he predicts hard times for the altcoins!

Bitcoin’s Domination May Rise According to One Analyst

With the last days of 2019 right around the corner, analysts and traders are getting the audience pumped for 2020 forecasts. The third Bitcoin (BTC) halving and Ethereum's probable migration towards its Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus will be hot topics for the crypto community. Prominent trader PlanB decided to surf this wave by showing BTC's dominating traction.

Four Stages for Dominance

In the historical chart, PlanB has revealed one of the most important indicators of the crypto world - Bitcoin's market capitalization. This indicator shows the ratio of BTC's market capitalization to the capitalization of all other cryptocurrencies tracked publicly by the available services (4000+ coins). This is used as a sign of comparative demand for altcoins and BTC.

Plan B showed the four stages of BTC's dominance, in which the graph is slipped vertically (bottom line indicates 100% BTC market dominance). The first stage, which lasted before April 2017, showed that BTC's dominance was more than 90%. The second stage (April-September 2017) showed that the figures were between 70% and 90%.

The third and the fourth stages repeated twice from September 2017 to the present day. In the early days of 2018, the indicator was at an all-times-low of 35%. Now, the graph is about to re-enter BTC's second stage with a 70+% dominance.

Altcoin Annihilation?

PlanB surrounded his picture with the ironic hashtag #altcoinannililation. Therefore, PlanB interpreted this traction as bad sign for the altcoins. It should also be said that some of commentators in PlanB's open thread suggest that the four-stage cycle was launched by the previous BTC halving of July 9, 2016.

Furthermore, we can see that BTC's high price correlates with its low market dominance. With that said, the publication by PlanB forecasts an extremely bearish start for 2020.

Recently, BTC advocate Tuur Demeester claimed that the price of BTC will drop one more time to $5,000. This level will be reached due to the capitulation of "weak" investors prior to the long bull rally.
