Falling Wedge and Whales’ Accumulation Signal Bullish Outlook

Ethereum Price| Tradingview

Amid the fourth Bitcoin halving, the ETH price correction recently bottomed at the combined support of 38.2% FIB and $2875. The positive upswing has uplifted the asset by 12.87% in five days to reach the current trading value of $3236.

An analysis of the daily chart shows the Ethereum price is developing a falling wedge pattern— a technical setup often considered a minor correction before a significant rally.

Moreover, the recent on-chain data reveals a marked increase in Ethereum (ETH) accumulation by notable investors, suggesting a bullish sentiment in the cryptocurrency market. A wallet possibly associated with Justin Sun, known as “0x4359,” has been particularly active, withdrawing 4,666 ETH ($14.91M) from Binance and purchasing 132,054 ETH ($420M) since April 8. Another new player, “0x9EB0,” has also withdrawn 7,182 ETH ($23.06M) from Binance within 18 hours.

Whales are bullish and accumulating $ETH!

Additionally, wallet “0x4446” withdrew 11,892 ETH ($37.77M) and engaged in derivatives on Compound by depositing ETH and borrowing USDT, indicating strategic market positioning. Meanwhile, “0x1958” has opted for staking, withdrawing 5,181 ETH ($16.28M), and investing in DeFi platforms Bedrock and Pendle.

Such accumulation despite a correction trend signals the smart money trade expects the continuation of the prevailing rally.

Thus, the ETH price is likely to break the wedge pattern on the upside, bolstering a potential rally to a $4090 high.
