ETH/USD: Can the leading altcoin outperform Bitcoin?
While Bitcoin (BTC) is trading in a sideways trend, Ethereum (ETH) is not rising as it was before. Moreover, the rate of the main altcoin has increased by 0.10% over the past day which is much less growth than that of Bitcoin (BTC).
On the 4H chart, the growth has slowed down. However, buyers keep buying back all of the local deeps, confirming their presence. Also, there is a high concentration of liquidity at the current levels. In this case, traders might be able to take Ethereum (ETH) to $246, a so-called 'Mirror' level, in the nearest days.
On the daily chart, the bullish trend is alive. However, it's unlikely it will end soon, as there is no impulse to push the rate higher based on the declining trading volume. In addition, Ethereum (ETH) has been trading in a narrow range for the past few days. All in all, bears are getting more powerful. However, the rate might retest the resistance at $253 one more time before an upcoming decline.
On the weekly time frame, Ethereum (ETH) has been showing a parabolic rise since March 2020. It is too early to think of retesting 2020 heights as the descending channel has not yet been broken. If the current weekly candle closes with a long bottom wick, there is a high probability of seeing the altcoin at the $260 resistance by the end of June.
Ethereum is trading at $243.40 at press time.
