This expert, known as FieryTrading, highlights the possible implications of Ethereum breaking this pattern, suggesting the possibility of an explosive rally that could take the price of Ethereum to record levels of around $4,800, reached in 2021.

“A breakout of this pattern could generate big gains for ETH, by forcing those with short positions to buy back their positions”

FieryTrading explained. This, according to the analysis, could result in 130% growth from current price levels.

At the time of writing, Ethereum is trading at $2,016.7, reflecting a slight decline of 1.4% in the last 24 hours according to data from CoinMarketCap.
