Ethereum has climbed over the past few days after bottoming at $310-315 early last week. The leading cryptocurrency has been profiting from a comeback in both legacy markets and Bitcoin, which both have pushed higher since the lows they established last week.
As of the time of this article’s writing, ETH trades for $380 — which is a price over 20% higher than the previous lows.
The cryptocurrency is up 5% in the past 24 hours, having pushed higher from a massive drop on Sunday morning. The coin remains in a decent spot from derivatives positioning viewpoint, with funding rates mostly neutral.
However, an analyst thinks that Ethereum could be primed to correct back towards the low shortly. Here’s why this analyst believes this will be the case.
Ethereum Could Be Poised to Correct Towards $383: Here’s Why
Ethereum’s continuing rally hasn’t convinced all traders that the cryptocurrency is back in a bull trend.
One analyst and exchange co-founder shared the chart below on September 14th. It shows that while ETH’s rally has marked a strong bounce, the coin is currently in a precarious technical situation.
The chart shows that ETH is currently rubbing up against two key resistances: horizontal support at ~$385 and an internal trend line that supported the price recovery last week. The analyst’s indicator, Top Goon X, has also formed a low time frame reversal signal, suggesting downside is more likely than upside.
These factors working in tandem are set to bring Ethereum towards the low-$300s, he recommended:

Everyone’s attention is on the Legacy Markets
Even though there are reasons to think Ethereum reverses as he laid out, it’s essential to keep an eye on legacy markets this week.
Alex Kruger, a macro analyst and economist tracking the crypto industry, recently commented that legacy markets could undergo a rally this week:
“Could have an obscenely green rocket start of the week. From Wednesday on it will be up to the Fed to let the party continue. Quite a few IPOs this week could help fire up risk appetite.”
This is significant for Bitcoin as the cryptocurrency has roughly been tracking stocks over the past few months.
