Ethereum Still in a Bullish Long-Term Position, Analyst Says
Analysts are still optimistic about Ethereum despite a strong drawdown from the local highs. One cryptocurrency trader recently shared the chart below, noting that while ETH has faced a correction, it remains above a series of exponential moving average supports.
“Personally with so much uncertainty in the market it is very possible we see a $300 region retest, that said honestly HTF structure is looking great, lots of EMA support below us… In 2018/2019 the 55 EMA was consistently resistance, price now trending well above!”

This came shortly after Logan Han, a top trader on Binance, also shared an optimistic opinion about Ethereum. Both analysts shared extremely similar charts, as they both showed that the cryptocurrency has extremely notable technical supports below its current price.
Han also noted that ETH has formed a medium-term falling wedge, which is likely to break higher. A falling wedge is a textbook bullish pattern that often occurs in the middle of uptrends.

Positive Fundamental Trends
Ethereum has positive fundamental trends that may drive the coin higher over time despite any short-term technical weakness.
As reported by Bitcoinist previously, Glassnode data indicates that over the course of September, Ethereum miners collected $166 million in transaction fees. Over that same time frame, Bitcoin miners collected a relatively small $26 million in transaction fees.
Analysts see this as positive for the blockchain as it shows that it is easily dominant over other networks like Tron, EOS, or Solana.
