What’s happening?

This past week, Ethereum has witnessed a massive sell-off crisis, with the price dropping below $2,900.

A recent report by CoinShares highlights that Ethereum has experienced a massive capital outflow, the largest since August 2022, with total losses amounting to $119 million over the last couple of weeks.

This continues a trend from a week ago, when Ethereum’s price dropped from a high of $3,887 to a low of $3,232, marking a 16.9% loss. Even though ETH’s price may be stagnating at the moment, a surge in staking indicates that existing users believe in the long-term potential of ETH.

Some experts, such as Eric Balchunas, point out to an unnecessary pause on the SEC part.

The anticipated launch of ETH ETFs on July 8 could be a “golden egg” for Ether’s price action. However, Bitcoin is expected to face sell pressure as $8.5 billion worth is returned to creditors of the collapsed exchange Mt. Gox starting this week, according to a report by K33 analysts.

The 100 EMA frequently serves as a reliable gauge of the general trend, and a break below it could trigger a large sell-off. Having currently regained the critical $3,000 level, Ether now needs to reclaim the $3,360 support level before July 8. If it fails, the short-term rally might be paused.
