Ethereum prices currently mimic sideways consolidations exhibited by the overall crypto spectrum. Taking the current phase as an extended accumulation period might have traders suspecting the structure means a bottom for ETH. However, let us explore the details.

ETH Daily Chart
Ethereum trades within a massive ascending channel on its daily chart. For now, the price hovers at the channel’s bottom. The Relative Strength Index remained beneath the baseline, suggesting bears controlled the market.
Adding 30-dayEMA ($2,700 now) shows the latest price spikes began when the price broke past the 30-dayEMA line and the Relative Strength Index crossed the baseline.

Crossing past this level and creating a higher high beyond the red line ($3,040), which remained a critical resistance over the past months, is crucial for ETH’s potential recoveries in the near term.
Technical analysts see Ethereum’s structure as bearish. That’s according to the analysis above. Meanwhile, the prevailing market sentiments require catalysts (demand) before Ethereum signals a potential trend shift. Capital Preservation remains the bottom line within the financial markets.
