The Ethereum price declined to $1,886 today, making a downfall of 1.5% in the last 24 hours as the overall cryptocurrency market is also slightly lower.
ETH is now down by 2.5% over the past week, although it has remained steady at 10% over the past 30 days and by 57% year-to-date.
The altcoin’s recent moves mean that average unpredictability has increased since early April and late 2022, meaning further moves (up and down) are more likely now than at any time in recent history.
And considering how solid Ethereum’s foundations have been following its recent upgrades, it’s probably only a matter of time before the cryptocurrency starts making significant gains.
In this regard, it is encouraging that ETH’s support level is starting to rise again, suggesting that it is consolidating somewhat after its recent declines and giving it a higher base for growth.
ETH’s recent highs and lows are also reflected in its unpredictability, with the BitMex Weekly Ether Volatility Index more than doubling since early April, falling from 1.8 to 5.44 year-to-date.
As such, ETH can look forward to more rallies in the near and distant future, backed by its fundamentals, which remain the greatest of any altcoin.
