Ethereum Could Soon Break $400: Here’s Why
One trader shared the chart below on August 8th, indicating that Ethereum’s recent price action looks like a consolidation pattern in May 2019. The consolidation was followed by a “massive pump” in 2019, suggesting ETH will do the same.
“I don’t know why not all of CT is talking about this ridiculously similar looking fractal. Spoiler: this chop led to another massive pump in 2019.”

This isn’t the only bullish Ethereum price fractal that has recently been shared.
As reported by NewsBTC previously, a fractal analysis by a trader found that Ethereum’s macro price action looks similar to BTC’s price action from the 2014 highs to the beginning of the 2016-2017 bull run. This analysis suggests that ETH will rally past $1,000 in the middle of 2021.
