ETH/USDT started the trading period with a trading volume of 29,253 ETH, and a mean value of 43,707 ETH carried over from the previous period. Trading volume spiked briefly at 48,724 ETH as ETH/USDT attempted to break out to set new highs. However, for most of the period, the trading volume actually contracted, dipping to a low of 6,152 ETH. This brought the mean down to 17,188 ETH.
The trading volume has since risen and at the time of writing sits at 22,584 ETH with a mean value of 20,750 ETH.
Throughout the entire period, the On Balance Volume (OBV) indicator declined significantly. The Accumulation/Distribution (Acc/Distr) sharply peaked as the corrections were briefly re-corrected but had been level throughout the trading period otherwise.
In the last trading period, ETH/USDT had seen volatility remain in the extremely high levels, carrying over from the past few days of trading. This was reflected at the beginning of this trading period, with HVI measuring 14.95 (high). However, volatility has since declined in this trading period, hitting a low of 5.78 (medium).
At the time of writing, HVI reads 6.51 (medium)
In this trading period, ETH/USDT has seen its trading volume collapse, and the momentum that comes along with it fall in sync. This is as the price fails to establish support at the $600 mark, falling to the $580 levels.
This has been married with a significant decrease in volatility, suggesting the fall in price is coming close to what the market wants. Therefore, as trading volume continues to contract, it is likely that volatility will continue to fall, meaning traders are looking for a price level below the $580 mark.
Expect the bears to remain strong for the time being.
