Ethereum (ETH) Price To Crash Following U.S. CPI Data?

Ethereum (ETH) Price

The price of Ethereum (ETH) is experiencing massive instability around $1,490, as the monthly pivot for February is also experiencing severe pressure. As lower highs continue to be established, the bearish squeeze is becoming increasingly apparent. Additionally, several on-chain factors point to ETH being on the verge of a price meltdown, which could further fuel the downward trend if in case the macroeconomic data turns out to be unfavorable.

U.S. CPI Data Acting As Catalyst

In recent days, the cryptocurrency market has been in a state of turmoil, with Ethereum going through a huge price correction that has caused its value to decline from a high of $1,710 to a low of $1,460 in the past 11 days. The behavior of Ethereum whales can have a substantial impact on price corrections, despite the fact that market factors can also play a vital role.

According to statistics collected on the Ethereum blockchain, during this 11-day period, whales who had between 100,000 and 1,000,000 ETH sold or redistributed around 350,000 ETH, which was worth $560 million. The sharp price decline that the cryptocurrency witnessed may have been considerably impacted by this large exodus of the asset.

When it comes to macroeconomic data like the U.S. CPI data, if inflation stays the same or even increases, there will be a tendency toward selling ETH. Traders should be mindful of one thing despite the fact that markets may still believe that a decline is likely to occur at some point. Every ten years, the inflation basket and indicators undergo small but significant changes in order to more precisely reflect real inflation.

This modification already adds a little bit more weight to several headline aspects such as food, apparel, and technology, all of which did not show any indications of cooling down and are even pointing to a higher value due to the fact that they are pointing to a higher valuation. Without taking into account the real figures, the inflation number is then adjusted so that it will at the very least remain unchanged or will barely climb higher. You should anticipate a knee-jerk reaction with a knife-through-butter move at $1,440, which is the location of both the 55-day and the 200-day Simple Moving Averages (SMAs), before price movement dives deeper towards $1,243, which is close to the bottom from February 2021.

Ethereum (ETH) Price Action

Moreover, as per prominent crypto analyst, Rekt Capital, the ETH price is eyeing a further drop which is close to embracing its earlier multi-month downward trend.

In addition, Glassnode notifies that the amount of supply of the last active 1m-3m (1d MA) just reached a 1-month low of 10,456,635.485 ETH. This signifies the fading trust in the altcoin supremo for the time being which might indicate towards acting as a catalyst to the fall in price.

As things currently stand, the price of Ethereum (ETH) is currently trading at $1,487 which represents a decrease of 3% over the past 24 hours, in contrast to a decline of 9% over the last seven days.
