Ethereum [ETH] Daily Chart:
Ethereum [ETH] has surpassed a crucial resistance level. The mega bearish rising wedge was invalidated as the crypto-asset soared to a new height. TWJ had previously reported that several technicals fliped positive after a prolonged dull market movement.
The moving averages also aligned with the bulls as evidenced by the rising gauge between the 50 DMA [Pink] and 100 DMA [Blue]. The Fib retracement highlighted some important levels to watch out for.
Ether Gears Up For Gains
The MACD indicator underwent a bullish crossover after two weeks of a bearish dominance. The On Balance Volume [OBV] registered a slight uptick and pointed to some buying activity as Ethereum’s price picked up from its support.
RSI depicted a similar sentiment, as it rose steadily towards the overbought zone depicting a massively growing buying pressure among the market participants.
After surging above the resistance area of $1,480, ETH appeared to be in for a huge move into the price discovery area. The technicals presented a massive bullish momentum which could potentially prompt the coin to its overhead resistance level of $1,629. The crypto has never traded before and not a lot of resistance is expected, hence and a further upside would aid Ether to target resistance levels such as $1,709 and $1,825 respectively.
Besides, it found support levels at $1,193, and $1,047 respectively.
