VIDEO: Ethereum Versus Bitcoin Analysis (ETHBTC): August 23, 2022
Looking at Ethereum’s monthly chart, after a clear violation of the last uptrend ending in 2017, Ethereum entered a bear market against Bitcoin –– yet was able to build a stable rounded base over the last five years.
Rounded Support And An Inverse Head And Shoulders
The rounded pattern has also potentially formed an inverse head and shoulders bottom. With a foundation built and the Merge on its way, this trade has a lot of potential. From the swing low of the pattern to the neckline produced a 350% climb.
Applying the measure rule multiplied by the pattern’s percentage of meeting its price target, the pattern’s target is roughly 250%.

Could The Parabolic SAR Suggest The Flippening Is Ahead?
Turning on the Parabolic SAR, the tool suggests a new uptrend could be forming. Parabolic SAR stands for stop and reverse, and tells the market when that moment has occurred. Traders utilize the tool to place a trailing stop loss above or below the SAR counter to the trend.
The last two times this signal triggered on monthly timeframes, Ethereum climbed more than 1,000% and 250% against Bitcoin respectively. The second number supports the price objective of the inverse head and shoulders pattern.

ETHBTC Still Stuck In The Clouds
For now, ETHBTC remains stuck under Ichimoku cloud resistance. Breaking out from the cloud could provide the thunder and lightning Ethereum bulls are looking for.
Price is above the Tenkan-sen and Kijun-sen, which are also crossed bullish. Looking back at the Chikou span, price is at a critical resistance level with only one higher resistance level remaining until price discovery occurs.
