With EIP-1559 only hours away Ether’s price action is being heavily surveilled by bulls and bears alike. The debate will soon be over whether or not this improvement proposal once live impacts the project’s trajectory or if sharding and ETH 2.0 are the only real difference makers forthcoming.
Over the last few days bitcoin has broken its demand line but the signs of strength on Ether’s chart have been growing over the same timespan.
ETH on the 4hr chart above from Mudrex is showing extremely strong bullish continuation and has also broken out against the BTC pair. The next few days should confirm whether the breakout is legitimate or a fakeout.
Ether bulls are eyeing $2,8k then $3k overhead as interim targets. Bears will hope they can regain some momentum and send the price back below $2,5k and then $2k but Ether bulls have been in total control for weeks now.
