In this episode of NewsBTC’s daily technical analysis videos, we examine the price action in Ethereum following the Merge upgrade in both the ETHUSD and ETHBTC trading pairs.

Take a look at the video below:

VIDEO: Ethereum Price Analysis (ETHUSD): September 15, 2022

Overnight last night, the Ethereum Merge upgrade occurred. As many expected, it turned out to be a sell-the-news event for the second-ranked cryptocurrency and has fallen by more than 10% intraday on the USD pair.

ETHUSD Pair Turns Bearish Post-Merge

On daily timeframes, things continue to look bad for Ethereum and other top crypto assets. The stock market is also in danger, adding stress to the entire situation.

ETHUSD on daily timeframes could be forming a head and shoulders top, just as LMACD crosses bearish. More downside could be necessary where the Relative Strength Index would hopefully find support at a lower trend line.

The Remaining Bullish Signal On Ethereum Weekly Charts

Turning on the Ichimoku gives Ether bulls at least some hope of hanging onto recent gains. Finding support in the Ichimoku cloud could lead to renewed energy and a retest of highs. The Ichomuku on Ethereum weekly charts also is trying to find support above the Tenkan-sen. Slightly above the Tenkan-sen is an even more important line to hold: the middle Bollinger Band.

Finding support above the middle Bollinger Band has in the past led to some of the altcoin’s strongest bull trends.

Ether Takes Beating On ETHBTC Ratio

The downside in Ethereum could be due to ongoing bearish macro conditions and strength in the dollar, but Ether even took a dive on the BTC trading pair. 

Although the ETHUSD pair is hoping to find support at the bottom of the Ichimoku cloud, the BTC pair is trying to establish support above the cloud both on daily and weekly timeframes. On the weekly, the bottom of the cloud was already tested and held, which is a bullish sign. However, the downtrend resistance line appears to have struck again and sent Ether tumbling against Bitcoin.

Despite the bearish signals on the ETHBTC pair, the video’s conclusion provides a longer-term bullish outlook you have to see for the full picture.

Uniswap Could Slide Below Support Zone

Uniswap
google news

On Thursday, the $6.7 price range of Uniswap was rebuffed once again. The momentum has slowed on the shorter time frames, which is a bearish indicator for traders and investors.

It’s possible that the recent decline in Bitcoin’s value is responsible for UNI’s lag.

Statistics show that there is a moderately high relationship between UNI and Bitcoin.

Recent price changes for both coins show a strong correlation between them. UNI has been closely following Bitcoin’s price action.

As the bearish slump in Uniswap continues into its second day, the currency pair may be retracing its recent gains.

As of this writing, UNI is trading at $6.45, up 12% in the last seven days, data from Coingecko show, Friday.

Uniswap Indicator: Bearish

UNI fell to a closing price of $6.379 yesterday, 7.62% lower than its September 28 closing price of $6.555. Price action in the past is also suggestive of a developing bearish momentum.

The momentum indicator is at a bearish low at the moment.

Daily and 4-hourly trends tell the same pattern as well. The amount of UNI currency on hand is at an all-time high, per CryptoQuant statistics. Foreign exchange reserves on the rise portend worse conditions.

As of this writing, daily UNI transaction volume in the shorter time frames from September 27 to now has been volatile.

During this time range on September 27, UNI rallied and tested the $6.7 resistance level. This price trend mirrored that of Bitcoin.

Although demand for UNI is not very great, both BTC and UNI are currently exhibiting indications of recovery.

A Retreat, Or Advance?

A recent research predicted that UNI would decline to $5.50, a volatile region that might spark a bigger sell-off in the crypto.

A decline of this nature could prompt investors and purchasers to acquire a position inside the aforementioned price range, restoring the currency to its current value.

However, UNI’s technological aspects are relatively neutral. On the charts, this appears as a near-stabilization of the price, which is supported by the 38.20 Fibonacci level.

This neutrality of the technical indicators and the relatively stable price range can assist the bulls in gaining strength for a breakout.

However, UNI has struggled to surpass the $6.49 level of resistance.

A breach of this resistance might initiate a gradual rally toward the $6.7 price level.

As the price trend wanes, UNI has a same chance of falling to $5.5 or rising to $6.7.
