Ether leads the crypto market

  • ETH/USD above $400 returns the positive tone to the market.
  • BTC/USD suffers from the $12400 level and does not join the bullish trend.
  • Market sentiment remains too positive and weighs down the upside potential.

The weekend leaves us with a new, unexpected upward movement of Ethereum. As a sign of the growing weight of Ethereum in the portfolios, the cryptocurrency designed by Vitalyk Buterin always gathers the first and best favorable winds that cross the crypto board.

Bitcoin stuck below $12000, a level of resistance that for the moment prevents access to areas of the chart with fewer obstacles and much more favorable for rapid price increases.

The focus for today, from a technical point of view, is on the DMI of the ETH/USD pair. The D+ indicator – Positive Directional Movement Indicator – will tell us in a few hours if the movement of Ethereum is valid or not. 

The market sentiment indicator prepared by the website alternative.me does not reflect an improvement in the perception by the movement of Ethereum. The indicator is at the 75 level today, remaining just below the level of extreme greed. Optimism continues to dominate, a negative figure in the short term.
