Sign of a Reversal? Ethereum (ETH) Volume Hits 52-Week High on Bitfinex


The price of Ethereum (ETH) has been highly volatile over the past few weeks of trading, dropping from nearly $300 to as low as $170 before settling around $220.22 currently.

However, Ethereum bulls may have regained some momentum as the price of ETH has bounced more than 25% off lows on what appears to be one of the highest volume days of trading this year.

While the total volume hit the highest point since July 18, the volume on leading crypto exchange Bitfinex hit its highest point in more than 52 weeks. Bitfinex currently represents 10% of the total daily trading volume for ether and the recent activity indicates that bulls on the platform are beginning to take back some of the momentum.


While the injection of volume on ETH’s daily chart could indicate a bullish reversal pattern, it is important to note that shorts have yet to be phased by the latest price action. Currently, the short-interest sits near all-time highs as many blockchain projects have been dumping the ETH they raised during ICOs.

The spike in volume came the same day that Michael Novogratz, the CEO of cryptocurrency focused merchant bank Galaxy Digital LP (GLXY), called a market bottom following a full-retrace in the Bloomberg Galaxy Crypto Index (BGCI), a 10-constituent cryptocurrency index that includes Bitcoin, Ethereum, Monero, Ripple and Zcash.

ETH is currently ranked 2nd in the AltDex 100 Index (ALT100), a benchmark index for large-cap cryptocurrencies and tokens.
