Our Forecast:

ETH/USD: Ethereum, the second largest cryptocurrency by market cap, continues to trade within a tight range after gaining more than 65 percent last month despite crashing lower from February's highs. ETH/USD is trading down just under 1 percent at the time of writing at $132.98, towards the lower end of the recent $128-$145 range, still some 20% lower than the Feb highs.

After the Feb crash, ETH made a low of $127.73, exactly above the 61.8 percent retracement level of the entire rise of February. From a daily perspective ETH/USD is stuck between the 100 and 200 day MA’s with MACD crossing back below zero indicating further losses may be possible. With strong sell signals from the short term moving averages and oscillators, bulls need to be wary of a potential break of the 61.8 percent retracement level, and bottom off the recent trading range at $127.73 which would see a swift decline towards $117-$120 level. Only a move back above recent range highs towards $145 would indicate the topside rally was ready to resume.
