Ethereum Price Analysis: ETH Surges 8% Daily, Eyes All-Time High

Key Support levels: $4,350

Key Resistance levels: $4,868 (ATH)

ETH has finally moved above 0.08 BTC on the ETH/BTC chart. With this breakout, the cryptocurrency signals that it is ready to make significant gains against Bitcoin and lead the altcoin market to new heights. This breakout is essential because it represents a resistance line going back to the 2017 top when one ETH was 0.15 BTC.

Ethereum rallied on the USD pair as well and it is less than 3% from the all-time high at $4,868. As such, the current support is found at $4,350, and the resistance is represented by ATH. Considering the major breakout versus BTC, ETH seems likely to continue its rally and the only significant resistance left now is the all-time high on the USD chart.
