Profit-taking on Ethereum, Ripple and IOTA let the bull rally stall
27. November 2020
After all three altcoins Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP) and IOTA (MIOTA) reached new annual highs at the beginning of the week, the Bitcoin sell-off in the last 48 hours caused significant price setbacks for all three altcoins.

The bullish rally this week brought Ethereum into the target area at the 261 Fibonacci extension at $ 608. The high marked the ether price at 620 US dollars. In the course of a significant price correction yesterday, Thursday, November 26, the Ether price corrected by 20 percent back to the breakout level at 485 US dollars. At this important price mark, the first buyers came back into the market and let Ethereum rise to currently 517 US dollars. The significant price correction on the overall market, led by Bitcoin (BTC) with a price slide of more than 3,000 US dollars, now has to be digested.
Bullish variant (Ethereum)
If the bulls can stabilize the ether price above 488 US dollars in the coming days, another increase to the 61 Fibonacci retracement at 550 US dollars is conceivable. If investors can stabilize the price above this mark at the end of the day in anticipation of the Ethereum 2.0 network launch on December 7th, a renewed increase to the annual high of 620 US dollars can be planned. Only when this high is dynamically overcome, however, is a subsequent rise in the direction of the 78 Fibonacci retracement at 678 US dollars likely. A sustained bullish mood should lead the Ether price in the coming weeks to the price target mentioned several times at 720 US dollars. If the key currency Bitcoin (BTC) reaches a new all-time high and breaks above the 20,089 US dollar, Ethereum should also continue to perform and reach the maximum price target of 842 US dollars. In perspective, a continuation of the rally on the overall market is likely to lead the Ether price to around 1,000 US dollars in 2021.
Bearishe Variante (Ethereum)
After weeks of abstinence, the bears have made an impressive return in the last few days and caused a sale up to the supertrend at 488 US dollars. So far, the sellers have not been able to push the ether price below the breakout level at $ 488. Ethereum continues to trade above the EMA20 (red) at $ 504 for the time being. If this sliding support is undershot by the daily closing price and the US $ 485 is broken, the bears will try to correct the rate up to US $ 460 (50s Fibonacci retracement). If this support is abandoned, the correction is likely to expand to around $ 440. In this area there is a first battle of strength between bulls and bears. If the course falls under this support,
This cross support from the uptrend line and horizontal support can be seen as pointing the way for the coming weeks. If Ethereum falls dynamically below this strong support, the current rally is over for the time being and the retest of lower prices is to be planned. If the weak support levels of 409 US dollars (EMA100) (yellow) and 383 US dollars are also undercut, a relapse to the EMA200 (blue) must be planned. The key support area between US $ 371 and US $ 363 therefore comes back into focus. If, contrary to expectations, the market as a whole should correct more sharply downwards, price reductions back to the September lows at USD 318 cannot be ruled out in the medium term. However, as long as the ether price is quoted above $ 420,
