Ether Rally Nears Resistance But 200-day Moving Average Boosts ETH

Ether’s impressive rally continues taking out the $567 swing low made on February 6, with the token now on course to take out resistance at $666, the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of the September 15 – January 14 rally. ETH is also now trading above the 200-day moving average for the first time since March 18, a bullish impulse which should continue to fuel the rally in the short- to medium-term. A Golden Cross is also on the way, when the 50-day ma moves up through the 200-day ma. Support at $568 and $497 should hold sway.
