Ethereum May Be Printing a Textbook Adam & Eve Top: Analyst
Ethereum is setting itself up for a drop towards the low-$300s, say a number of analysts after recent price action.
One cryptocurrency trader shared the chart below on August 7th. It shows that ETH’s recent price action since the end of July looks eerily similar to the textbook “Adam and Eve” top. Cryptocurrencies have printed Adam and Eve bottoms and tops on multiple occasions over the past few years.

The same trader noted in a later analysis that he thinks the cryptocurrency looks primed to retest $375 after the ongoing rebound: “Price tagged weekly open perfectly to the pip, now I’m watching how it reacts to retesting the breakdown point, might look for hedge short around that area if price action weak.”
The aforementioned trader isn’t the only one predicting an ETH correction in the days ahead.
As reported by Bitcoinist previously, one trader shared the chart below on August 8th. It shows that the cryptocurrency is looking to move towards the $300 as that would line up with the “Fibonacci and horizontal confluence.”

All Eyes on Bitcoin
Ethereum’s price action is dependent on Bitcoin at the end of the day.
Fortunately for bulls, analysts are doubling down on their BTC optimism as the asset managed to hold $11,500 after yesterday’s drop.
The pseudonymous analyst “PentarhUdi,” who has predicted almost everyone one of Bitcoin’s major moves over the past three years, shared bullish sentiment last weekend:
“This is not more than 4 months prediction, as I spotted new bullish channel . According to my idea price may reach ATH area in 2 months with following some triangle-like consolidation. For EW lovers – I think price is in starting local III wave with all 3rd-wave-specific bullish drama around. Wave length is around 2 months.”

Analysts also say that the fundamentals of this market are stronger than ever as a discussion about more monetary and fiscal stimulus continues.
