ETHUSD 2022 07 20 16 42 17

Ethereum has rallied considerably over the last week securing close to 53% appreciation. At the moment ETH has managed to break past an important resistance mark of $1500 and flipped it into a support level. The coin maintained a rally after it crossed the $1000 mark, chance of correction still remains on the horizon.

Bullish strength has regained vigour as buying strength also shot up. The invalidation of bearish thesis started once ETH managed to cruise past $1200. If the coin remains above the $1500 mark then the bulls could propel the price higher.

The rally was also caused by the bullish sentiments revolving around the Merge that is anticipated in the month of September. There are chances for the coin to shoot up to $2000 but there are other resistances that ETH has to break past for that to happen.

The coin has been trading on an ascending trendline and it could soon revisit $1660 on its chart. The global cryptocurrency market cap today is $1.12 Trillion with 4.6% positive change in the last 24 hours.
