PEPE Derivatives Data

Open interest in Pepe, which represents the total number of outstanding futures contracts that have not been settled, has risen by 39% to $169 million in the past 24 hours. This increase is generally interpreted as a sign of strong market confidence in Pepe’s future price movements. Traders are increasingly taking long positions, anticipating further gains.

The increase in open interest coupled with a bullish market sentiment suggests that Pepe might continue to see price growth in the short term. 

Impact of Ethereum’s Positive Market Movements

Pepe, being an Ethereum-based memecoin, has directly benefited from the positive developments surrounding Ethereum. The potential approval of spot Ether ETFs has not only boosted Ethereum’s price but also had a spillover effect on associated tokens. 

Over the past two days, Ethereum has seen a rise of over 20% reaching  $3,841. This increase has created a bullish environment for related assets, with Pepe reaching new highs.

Market analysts have observed that meme coins often mirror the trends of their underlying blockchains. In this instance, Pepe’s significant upswing is seen as a direct result of investor optimism towards Ethereum, making Pepe one of the standout performers in the crypto market currently. 

PEPE/USD Technical Analysis

Crypto traders and analysts have expressed that Pepe’s upward trajectory might continue, albeit with expected normal market corrections. Crypto trader “Plazma” suggests that Pepe’s price discovery phase could extend over the next few weeks, potentially reaching 2x-3x its current value, despite some anticipated pullbacks.

Other analysts observe that PEPE has printed two of its longest green candles in history forecasting a looming ultra-god candle. However, on the PEPEUSD 4-hour price chart the Relative Strength Index (RSI) is overbought suggesting that the bull rally may fade. This trend suggests that traders should consider setting stop losses in case of a bearish turnover.

In contrast to the RSI trend, the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) trend above its signal line suggests that the bullish momentum is strong. This trend points to a sustained rally with a potential pullback seen as a chance to accumulate.

The Rate of change (ROC) shift in trend also points to a cool-off in the bullish rally. However, if the Ethereum ETF is approved the PEPE price would be headed for a bullish breakout.
