Ethereum Price – Buy Dips?

Ethereum price proved once again that the bears cannot be trusted at this moment. The bullish sentiment is so strong that it’s hard for sellers to take charge. The price moved higher Intraday, and traded back towards the last swing high of $12.00.

Yesterday’s bearish trend line on the hourly chart (data feed via Kraken) was broken during the upside drift. The most important point is that the price broke the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $11.98 high to $8.48 low as well. Overall, there was a solid uptrend that may continue in the near term. Moreover, the price is now above the 100 simple moving average (hourly chart, data feed via Kraken), which may now act as a support in the short term.
