As the above chart shows, Ethereum seems to have formed what’s popularly known as the “double top” pattern. Historically, formation of such peaks has been a bearish signal.
However, a double top can’t be confirmed until the price drops below the support level marked by the dip between the two peaks.
The above chart was actually posted by the analyst a few hours ago. A more recent version of the chart looks something like this:

It looks like right after forming the two peaks, the price seems to have crashed down to $3.2k, which is below the 3.3k support level.
In most cases, such a dip confirms that the formation is a bearish double top. However, here the price seems to already be moving back up the support level.
Following a double top event, the support level becomes resistance so that the price stays below it for a while. It’s possible it could just be a shoulder formation, and that the bearish trend might still be active.
Though the opposite could also be true; the price might keep going back up instead. However, another bearish signal also went off…
About 100k ETH Flows Into Binance
The “netflow” is a metric that shows the net amount of coins moving into or out of exchanges. It’s calculated by simply taking the difference between the inflows and the outflows.
When the indicator takes a negative value, it means more ETH is moving out than in, while a positive value implies the reverse.

Such a positive spike generally implies investors are facing heavy selling pressure, and thus they are sending their coins to exchanges for dumping them.
