ETH/USD: Could Ethereum grow faster than Bitcoin during the possible bull run?
Ethereum (ETH) has kept up with the growth of the main crypto. Moreover, it has even surpassed it, having increased by more than 7%.
On the hourly chart, Ethereum (ETH) has reached the local peak at almost the $225 mark. At the moment, the coin is already oversold based on the value of the RSI indicator. Also, there is no liquidity above to push the rate higher. In this regard, a more likely forecast is a correction to the nearest vital level at $217. This will be just a rollback and not the start of a bearish trend.
On a bigger time frame, the situation is also not so positive for Ethereum (ETH) holders. The support line of the Bollinger Bands indicator is looking down while the basic and the resistance are going up. This is a signal that bulls are running out of fuel and a decline may happen soon. If that happens, the rate will correct to the $208-$210 range soon.
On the daily chart, the situation is quite the opposite. The long-term bullish trend has just started as the lines of the MACD indicator have crossed each other. What is more, the current rise is supported by the relatively high buyer trading volume. In addition, Ethereum (ETH) has still not left the borders of the rising channel, confirming the presence of bulls. All in all, the end-point of the current rise is the $252 mark, which may be reached by the end of June 2020.
Ethereum is trading at $221.12 at press time.
