Applying the Elliott Wave theory in his analysis, Bluntz predicted that Ethereum is about to complete a five-wave pattern. According to him, Ethereum will decline to $1,450 on completing the wave pattern marked 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5.
In Bluntz’s technical analysis, the five-wave chart pattern exists within a larger three-wave pattern marked A, B, and C. And this three-wave pattern is also on a downtrend. He noted that ETH and BTC must complete this wave pattern before a bullish upturn.
However, while this analysis projects a bearish trend for ETH and BTC, Bluntz believes there is potential for a bullish breakout. He said the theory becomes invalid if ETH breaks above $1,804 or Bitcoin surpasses the $28,770 price level.
Invalidation of this thesis is if we break $1,804 for ETH or $28,770 for BTC as wave-4 can’t go within wave-1 territory,
As the bears pressed on, the flagship cryptocurrency traded within the $26,000 price level, occasionally regressing to $25,900. The downturn was in tune with the bearish sentiment in the cryptocurrency market over the past few days.
As a result, Bitcoin recorded a sharp spike that returned its value to the $28,000 price mark. At the time, BTC’s price surged 8%, climbing from a week low of $25,860 to a high of $28,010. But the bulls couldn’t sustain the momentum as Bitcoin quickly regressed, dipping to $27,394.
Bitcoin now consolidates around the $27,000 price zone, awaiting a bullish turn to trigger a rally.
Ether’s price slipped off the $1,800 support on August 17, accompanied by a prolonged bearish momentum that pushed it to $1,600.
Just like Bitcoin, Ethereum reacted to the brief market recovery, pushing above $1,740 on August 29. While ETH’s rally has relapsed, it maintains a price level above $1,700, holding over 2% of its past week’s gains. However, ETH’s latest strides suggest the bulls are up for a recovery.
