Ethereum losing NFT Market Share to Solana- JP Morgan
JP Morgan reported that Ethereum’s dominance in non-fungible tokens (NFTs) has been shrinking continuously since August. The high gas fees and congestion are responsible for the move. However, ETH finds some support following the Cosmos Exchange Osmosis announcement to expand to Ethereum assets with Gravity Bridge.
Important Strong Confluence near $29K imp to hold
On the weekly chart, the ‘head & shoulder’ pattern resulted in almost 40% depreciation from the 2021 highs of $4,867.81. Now, Ethereum’s price is standing at a crucial juncture near the horizontal support line of $2,990. This also coincides with 50-DMA, thus making it a crucial level to trade.
However, on the 4-hour chart, there is a bullish piercing formation near the session’s low of $3,048.64. The red candle is being followed by a strong green candle but the bulls could not gather strength to breach the day’s high of $3,194.28. This scenario keeps pressure on the bulls near the higher levels.
Now it will be interesting to watch if the price could be able to hold the psychological level of $30K. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) is close to being oversold. This could help the bulls to push beyond this level.
