- Ethereum has broken above the hypotenuse of an ascending triangle, adding credibility to the upswing.
- ETH/USD will validate the expected breakout to $1,800 on trading above the current yearly high at $1,800.
Ethereum is in the middle of a fresh rally to $1,800 after taking back several key levels including the 50 Simple Moving Average on the 4-hour chart and $1,200. The pioneer altcoin eyes a new all-time high at $1,800 after rising above $1,300. Trading above $1,350 (current 2021 high) will validate the anticipated uptrend to $1,800.
In the meantime, Ether is trading at $1,300 after breaking above the x-axis of an ascending triangle pattern. The flagship altcoin has endured a prolonged consolidation period that began the mid-last week. While its price has made a series of higher lows since then, the $1,300 resistance level continued to reject Bitcoin from advancing further.
Such market behavior led to the formation of the ascending triangle on Ethereum’s 4-hour chart. A horizontal line can be drawn along with the swing highs while a rising trendline created along with the higher lows.
A recent spike in the buying pressure behind the pioneer cryptocurrency has allowed it to break the overhead resistance. For now, it could shoot up by 41%% based on the ascending triangle formation. This target is determined by measuring the distance between the two highest points of the triangle and extrapolating the margin from the breakout point.
