  • Sentiment level nears euphoria adds bearish potential to the crypto market.
  • Ethereum tests $400 in the Asian session, fails at European opening.
  • Ripple falls decisively and returns doubts to the XRP/USD pair.

The crypto market continues to push upwards despite strong overbuying and over-optimism in the market. Today the Ethereum gives an unexpected change of direction and accumulates a 5% gain against Bitcoin in only two sessions.

Ether’s upward movement puts on the table a bullish terminal pattern that could take the market to levels far above the current ones.

Trading in these market conditions is not as safe as the current price levels admit significant price corrections as being highly probable. If on the contrary, the crypto board decides to move up, the rise can be vertical and leave the current price levels as an anecdote.

Market sentiment is unchanged from yesterday and remains at level 75, one point below the extreme optimism level. This level of complacency remains very high and dangerous.

Clues to such a puzzle may come from the side of the dominance charts. 

In the case of Bitcoin, the dominance level is now at 61.6%, and it’s trying to form a technical floor. Below the 61.24% level, the positions could rotate actively towards Ether and the rest of Altcoins.
