Tech View by Giottus Cryptocurrency Exchange
Ethereum (ETH), the second largest cryptocurrency, has had quite a run since 2020. It has rallied from a low of $150 in March 2020 to over $4,000 today. Over the past few weeks, ETH has successfully broken through its local top of $4,030 and is now continuing upwards.
As the world’s largest blockchain platform, hosting thousands of cryptocurrencies, smart contracts and dApps, ETH deserves to be called a blue-chip of crypto in addition to Bitcoin (BTC). With BTC hitting its all-time-high (ATH) yesterday, ETH is expected to have a strong run this month.
Its next major resistance remains its ATH – located at the $4,370-4,400 range. With BTC trading well above its 20-week moving average and ETH/BTC currently bouncing off a support trendline forming since May this year, the ETH/BTC ratio is also expected to rise once BTC completes its price discovery – indicating that ETH will outperform BTC in the immediate future. It will need to wrestle with resistance at $4,215 on its way up.
However, once past these levels, ETH is likely to go into price discovery mode, with no resistances in play.
Psychological level of $5,000 and above may be the next big target. Should ETH start to decline, it is likely to find support at $4,030, which is a key daily level from May.
Support: $4,030, $4,000
Resistance: $4,216, $4,370, $4,400
