Analysts Expect Ethereum to Surge Higher in Near-Future as Technical Foundations Strengthen

Bitcoins upwards ascent over the past several weeks has proven to be very positive for the aggregated crypto markets, and has allowed many major cryptocurrencies, including Ethereum (ETH), to put a significant amount of distance between their current prices and their yearly lows.

Analysts now believe that this upwards momentum is likely to continue, which may allow Ethereum to extend its upwards surge towards $300 in the near future.

Ethereum (ETH) Builds Strong Technical Foundations

At the time of writing, Ethereum is trading up just under 2% at its current price of $251, up from its daily lows of $245.

While looking at ETHs long-term price action, the cryptocurrency is trading up significantly from its 2018 lows of just under $90, and up from its 90-day lows of $130. Ethereums upwards ascent has been driven by Bitcoins recent surge that has sent BTC from lows of roughly $3,000 to highs of nearly $8,400.

Ethereums upwards surge has allowed it to form some bullish technical formations that may allow it to surge higher in the near future, with its most notable recent formation being a coveted golden cross that may lead it to surge higher in the near-future.

Etherdamus (formerly known on Twitter as TheScienceGuy9489) recently told his nearly 10,000 followers on Twitter that ETHs golden cross has now been confirmed, which may lead to some bullish volatility in the near-future.

#ETH Golden Cross Confirmed. Could take up to a few days for effect to show in price, he said in a recent tweet.

Analyst: ETH May Surge Towards $300 Next

As for where this upwards momentum may lead Ethereum next, one analyst believes that there is a strong possibility that the crypto may test $270, with a break above this level leading it significantly higher.

The Cryptomist, another popular cryptocurrency analyst on Twitter, discussed her thoughts on ETH in a recent tweet, noting that it currently has support at $249, and a near-term upside target existing at around $269.

$ETH I have adjusted the candle resistance ever so slightly from previous post. We are within the apex of pennant. Expecting a move within 16 hours. Breakup tests $269 first, with alts moving with. Support is at 249 region, she explained.

In order for Ethereum and other altcoins to form another upwards leg in the near-future, it is important that Bitcoin either continues advancing higher, or begins to find stability and consolidate around its current price levels, as a rejection and pullback could jeopardize the markets momentum.

It is likely that traders and analysts alike will gain a better understanding of which direction Bitcoin and the aggregated crypto markets are heading next in the near-future.
