Predicting Ethereum’s Price: 50% Growth Against Bitcoin Possible

- Advertisement -
  • Ethereum’s ETH may see a 50% increase against Bitcoin, based on the inverse head-and-shoulders pattern analysis.
  • Technical projections place ETH/BTC target at 0.084 by year-end if it breaks above the neckline resistance at 0.061 BTC.

Ethereum’s native token, Ether (ETH), is set for a potential 50% increase against Bitcoin (BTC) in the coming months, according to an analysis of the ETH/BTC trading pair. This analysis is based on a technical chart pattern known as the inverse head-and-shoulders (IH&S).

Technical Analysis of ETH/BTC

The IH&S pattern is identified by three troughs with the middle one being the deepest and the other two of similar depths but less than the middle. This pattern forms below a consistent neckline resistance level. For Ether, the formation of this pattern is an indicator that a significant price rise might be on the horizon, as mentioned in ETHNews.

As of June 17, the ETH/BTC pair fluctuated after seemingly forming the head of the IH&S pattern. The trajectory of this pattern suggests an impending upward movement towards the neckline resistance, which stands at around 0.061 BTC.

ETH/BTC breakout setup resembles 2021’s 140% surge

Should the pair successfully break out above this neckline with sufficient trading volume, the projected target would be around 0.084 BTC, marking over a 50% increase from its current levels.

Historical Context and Future Projections

Analyst Wolf pointed out that this setup resembles a similar IH&S pattern from 2019-2021, which resulted in a 140% surge in price after a decisive breakout in April 2021. Adding to this optimistic forecast is the historical performance following Bitcoin’s halvings.

For instance, ETH/BTC saw a 330% increase after the third Bitcoin halving in May 2020 and a substantial 900% rally post the second halving in July 2016.

Currently, ETH/BTC is trading within a large triangle pattern since the fourth Bitcoin halving in April 2024. The price has been consolidating sideways, maintaining above the triangle’s lower trendline. A push towards the upper trendline at around 0.062 BTC is expected, indicating a potential 20% rise from present levels.

Potential Catalysts

The bullish outlook for ETH/BTC is further supported by potential catalysts in the broader cryptocurrency market. Notably, the anticipated approval and launch of spot Ether ETFs could act as a significant trigger for these technical scenarios to materialize. Bloomberg analysts have speculated that such ETFs could be introduced as early as July 2.

The positive forecast for ETH/BTC in 2024 is reinforced by its past performance following Bitcoin’s halving events.

This confluence of technical patterns and potential market developments makes a compelling case for Ethereum’s near-term prospects against Bitcoin. While the technical analysis suggests a strong upward potential, market and upcoming developments will play crucial roles in determining the actual market movements.
