  • Ethereum price had a major breakout today following Bitcoin’s rally thanks to Elon Musk. 
  • The digital asset faces one last critical resistance level before a major breakout.
  • ETH is contained inside an ascending triangle pattern on the 12-hour chart.

Ethereum has been trading inside a tightening range after hitting a new all-time high at $1,475. The digital asset has formed a robust support trendline and faces only one crucial resistance point which will lead to a significant breakout.

Ethereum price needs to crack this crucial level to see $1,900

On the 12-hour chart, Ethereum has established an ascending triangle pattern with the resistance trendline formed at $1,430. A breakout above this point gives a target price of $1,900 in the long term.

The only potential bearish sign is the TD Sequential indicator on the weekly chart which is close to presenting a sell signal. The confirmation of this call could push Ethereum price down to the psychological level at $1,000 if bears can manage to crack the support area between $1,276 and $1,316 which should offer a lot of strength according to the IOMAP model.
