It’s a new all-time high in Ether price versus the US Dollar as a lot of strength was noticed in ETH/USD and ETH/BTC.

Key Highlights

There were amazing gains noted in Ether price against the US Dollar and Bitcoin, as the bullish trend got hold.
A new all-time high at $21.81 was formed in ETH/USD, as buyers had an upper hand.
The daily chart of ETH/USD suggests further gains with a possible test of $22.

Technically, the daily chart indicators are super bullish, and signaling further upsides in the near term.

Ether Outpacing Bitcoin

In major news, the SEC rejected the request to list Bitcoin ETF, which resulted in a downside move in BTC/USD. This actually helped Ether, as it became the first choice of investors during the decision time.

It resulted in a solid upside rise in Ether price, as it moved above the last major resistance above $20 and created a new all-time high at $21.81.

Yesterday, we saw how Ether price developed a new wave higher, and moved above 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level of the last decline from the $20.09 high to $16.26 low.

All the charts are signaling positive moves in ETH/USD, and ETH/BTC is also enjoying decent gains, as Bitcoin price remained under a bearish pressure.

The 2-hour chart of ETH/USD shows how the price broke a major resistance area, currently following an ascending channel pattern. The price at $21.81 found resistance near the channel resistance, and currently under a minor correction.
