Despite a strong slide in Ether prices, the altcoin managed to endure a critical phase after it plunged close to the $1,500 mark. But within days Ether has rebounded and has come back strongly with a 6% recovery. This resurgence by ETH could be an indication of the pivotal moment as there has been a reversal of around 16% over the last month.
But despite the smart recovery, the price performance has worried investors about it has that it could find it difficult to return to the $1,850 mark. Network activity and ETH derivatives could be crucial to this riddle.
Investor pessimism has been mitigated to a significant level through macroeconomic factors. It is a given since inflation in America has seen a significant acceleration for the 2nd month in a row. It reached 3.7% as per the recent CPI report. Such data strengthens the feeling that government debts in the US will see a significant and quick rise in the coming months. This could compel the US Treasury to give out higher yields.
