Ether Price Eyeing Further Upsides
Ether rose to its strongest levels this past week against both the US Dollar and Bitcoin. ETH/USD formed a new all-time high at $134.13, while ETH/BTC climbed to a market average of 0.0657BTC.
Let’s start by looking at the 12-hour chart of ETH/USD, which clearly highlights the current bullish trend above $100.00.
A long consolidation pattern formed below $100.00, as the pair traded in a $20.00 range of $100.00-80.00. Later, the pair broke the highlighted consolidation box at $100.00, setting a bullish tone for further gains.
The upside move was strong, as the price was able to post more than a 20% increase, trading at a new all-time high, at $134.13. The last two candles on the chart are neutral and suggest a short-term consolidation phase or correction.
Moving down to the 2-hour chart, there is a perfect 11-candle bullish pattern, which completed near $135.00. At the moment, the pair is trading inside a triangle pattern with support at $126.00.
The mentioned support is also near the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level of the last wave from the $118.00 low to $134.00 high. In my view, there is a bullish pennant pattern in making.
If there is a break above the $132.00 triangle resistance, there is a chance of ETH/USD gaining momentum for another bullish ride. However, I can see a minor divergence on the RSI of H2, suggesting an extended correction.
Overall, the next break is crucial. If there is a break and close above $132.00, the price may head higher and can even trade towards $150.00. Otherwise, a close below $125.00 might pull ETH/USD back towards $118.00.
