  • Ethereum price breaks out in tandem with Bitcoin’s surge to $10,000.
  • A falling wedge pattern breakout could still boost ETH/USD to test $220 resistance.

The cryptocurrency market is mixed red and green in the wake of Bitcoin’s surge past $10,000. Ethereum tried to follow in the footsteps of the granddaddy of the digital market but its margin of gains has been limited this time around. ETH/USD is dancing at $213 after retreating from highs around $216.

In spite of the minor retreat from the intraday highs, Ethereum’s break above a falling wedge pattern resistance suggests that the path to $220 is clear. Besides, the RSI is above the average (50) and still pointing upwards in a bid to display a stronger bullish grip.

The opening value at $212 is currently the immediate support. ETH/USD will find additional support at the 50 SMA ($210) in the 4-hour range in the event declines extend. The critical level at $200 (100 SMA) is also in line to offer support. For now, the biggest task is to hold Ethereum above $212 and keep the focus on $220.
