Ether Price Extends Recent Rise
The impressive bullish trend for Ether price got further strength against most of its major peers like the US Dollar and Bitcoin. The best part was ETH/USD moving above the $20.00 level, which was a major barrier. The ETH/BTC pair also enjoyed decent gains and settled above the 0.0150BTC resistance.
A clear break of $20.00 in ETH/USD was pretty easy, suggesting that the current trend is real, and Ether price gains are here to stay. Looking at the 30-min chart, there is a monster ascending channel pattern formed with resistance near $20.80.
On the downside, the channel support is at $20.00, which is a physiological level. It also represents the 50% Fibonacci retracement level of the last wave from the $19.40 low to the recent high of $20.62.
As long as the price is in the ascending channel, it may continue to rise. So, what can be the next major hurdle for Ether price? I would say the all-time high of $21.30. There is a high chance of the price extending current gains and testing the mentioned level.
Furthermore, if the current momentum stays, there is a possibility of ETH/USD forming a new all-time high above $21.30.
The 4-hour chart highlights the current bullish trend with more than 6 back to back bullish candles. From the technical perspective, in a perfect bullish trend, there can be 10 back to back bullish candles. So, we can see more upsides before there is a substantial correction in Ether price.
