Latest Ethereum price and analysis (ETH to USD)

angel may

Ethereum is now trading 28.53% lower than it was at the turn of the month after succumbing to bearish sell pressure over the past week.

The world’s second largest cryptocurrency by market cap is currently trading at $342 after bouncing from the $316 level of support over the weekend.

The $316 level has been mapped out after a support/resistance flip at the end of July, which eventually paved the way for a period of bullish continuation that saw Ethereum reach as high as $490.

While holding above $316 will be key, in the short term Ethereum is showing signs of weakness with the four-hour 50 EMA crossing the 200 EMA to the downside for the first time since June.

The velocity and efficiency of the recent break down in price can only be attributed to the lack of long-term belief in DeFi projects like Sushi and Yearn Finance.

Rally in Canadian Consumer Confidence Fades on Economic Concern

angel may

(Bloomberg) — The swift recovery in Canadian consumer confidence over the summer has petered out, weighed down by concern around the economic consequences of a second wave of Covid-19 as cooler weather approaches.

The Bloomberg Nanos Canadian Confidence Index, a composite measure of financial health and economic expectations, was unchanged at 52.7 last week. The stall reflects waning optimism about the economic outlook.

“After a period of improving consumer confidence, the trajectory of the positive trendline is beginning to flatten,” Nik Nanos, chief data scientist at Nanos Research, said in the report. “There could be a slow down in the Covid-19 economic recovery.”

Canadian consumer confidence stalled again last week

The stall in consumer confidence has been largely predicted by economists who say the fall and winter months will bring a slower recuperation because some social-distancing restrictions will remain amid concern over a second Covid-19 wave.

(Reuters) – Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc BRKa.N said on Friday it had cut its Wells Fargo & Co WFC.N stake to 3.3%, further reducing what had once been a $32 billion investment in the bank.

Berkshire said in a regulatory filing bit.ly/2Z9Kxml, it owned about 137.6 million shares, worth $3.4 billion, of the fourth-largest U.S. bank by assets, down about 100 million from the end of June.

Buffett began investing in Wells Fargo in 1989, but has been reducing Berkshire’s stake as the bank struggles to recover from a series of scandals over its treatment of customers, including the opening of accounts without their knowledge.

Wells Fargo’s ability to grow remains subject to a Federal Reserve limit. Moody’s Investors Service on Wednesday lowered its rating
