Ethereum’s Dip: Bear Trap or Bullish Opportunity?

Ethereum’s Decline Against Bitcoin

Trading expert Peter Brandt has weighed in on the recent decline in Ethereum’s value against Bitcoin. He suggests that the ongoing drop could be a “bear trap,” meaning it may entice sellers to short Ethereum, only to see it reverse unexpectedly.

Bullish Signals Amid the Downturn

Despite the decline, bullish signals have emerged for Ethereum:

  • Options Market Optimism: A significant portion of Ethereum options expiring in April are bullish bets.
  • Put-Call Ratio: The ratio of put options to call options favors call options, indicating bullish sentiment.
  • New Ethereum Whales: Two new whales have acquired substantial amounts of ETH, suggesting confidence in its prospects.

Bitcoin’s Strength

While Ethereum faces pressure against Bitcoin, Bitcoin itself has shown resilience. Analyst Ali predicts a potential breakout and upside target of $85,000 if Bitcoin holds above $70,800.
