Technical Outlook: We’ve been tracking this rally in Ethereum prices since the breach above the November opening range earlier in the month with the advance already taking out initial targets at 350 & 362. Critical topside resistance objectives are eyed at the high-day close at 385 backed by the record high at 405. Interim support now rests back at 349 with bullish invalidation now raised to 315/20. A break below the monthly open at 304 would be needed to put the bears in control.

Notes: A closer look at price action shows Ethereum breaking above channel resistance before checking this slope as support last night. Note that the near-term momentum profile looks a bit tired here and leaves the immediate advance vulnerable. Bottom line: while we could see some pullback from here, the outlook remains weighted to the topside and we’ll favor fading weakness while above 315.
