Ethereum price is bounded inside an ascending triangle pattern 

At the time of writing, Ethereum bulls have created an ascending triangle on the 4-hour chart and managed to defend the lower trendline again on December 4. The upper boundary is set at $619, which is the most critical resistance level.

A clear breakout above $619 can quickly push Ethereum price towards $755. The In/Out of the Money Around Price (IOMAP) chart reveals almost no resistance to the upside besides the range between $592 and $609.

It seems that a breakout above $609 would easily drive Ethereum price towards the upper boundary of the pattern at $619 and above it as the IOMAP shows no opposition until $680. On the other hand, there is a robust support area between $555 and $573.

A breakdown below the lower trendline of the triangle at $580 would push Ethereum price down to $555. Failure to hold this level can potentially drive ETH towards a lower price target at $468.
