Ethereum at lowest level since March 2021
Ethereum (ETH), the largest alternative cryptocurrency, dropped to $1,423 on the Bitstamp exchange this Sunday, hitting its lowest level since March 1, 2021. The largest altcoin is down more than 70 percent from its November peak of $4,878. According to data provided by Coinglass, ETH, worth $68 million, was liquidated in just 12 hours. The most liquidated positions are long positions opened by traders who are hopeful that the coin will rise.
With its last drop, ETH was found to have slumped below the 2018 bull run peak of $1,440. According to data provided by cryptocurrency analytics platform Glassnode, ETH is more than 18 percent below its current realized price. The actual price for ETH 2.0 deposits is $2,404, meaning stakers are sitting on losses close to 40 percent.
What can analysts expect?
As prominent cryptocurrency trader Scott Melker noted, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) has plunged into the oversold territory for the second time in its history on its weekly chart. Since the beginning of the year, Ethereum funds seem to be losing investors’ interest in the top altcoin. Rising stock market reserves and bearish signals also contributed to the decline.
Still, Ethereum’s upcoming transition to Proof-of-Stake, which is scheduled to happen later this year, is expected to be a major boost for the blockchain’s native token.

General forecast for the markets from the analyst
Meanwhile, another well-known analyst, Bozokcoin (bozok6), shared his comments on the current bearish trend of the markets. Bozokcoin stated that “it is not normal to have so many sales before the weekly closing” and said, “If they are going to sell goods, it would be more logical to make the weekly closing positive and give them at the beginning of the week.” According to the analyst, seeing such sales near the last day of the week “indicates panic sales”.
Noting that no one can interpret the market completely correctly, Bozokcoin warns its approximately 150 thousand followers to “always take your precautions”. The expert states that “a negative news, manipulative news” can cause great harm. Finally, he says, such events can “destroy life for leverage.”
