Ethereum has exploded higher since the daily lows, rocketing from the $515-520 region to highs close to $580. The coin has retraced slightly to $565 as of the weekly candle close.
Analysts expect ETH to move even higher in the days and weeks ahead. There are a number of technical and fundamental trends set to drive the coin even higher, including the imminent launch of ETH2, the growth of the decentralized finance (DeFi) space, and the simple fact that there is little technical resistance from here toward $700.
Bitcoin’s outlook is believed to be somewhat bullish as well. While some are starting to get worried by BTC’s technicals, there are fundamental signs that suggest the leading cryptocurrency will continue its ascent. Further strength in the price of Bitcoin should bode well for Ethereum and other altcoins, though it is currently unclear which coin will outperform the other.

$ETH / USD This is such a f**king bullish daily close, if the weekly closes up here (which I think it will), next resistance is $750… How can you not be bullish right now when quarter of a million ETH is locked up for more than a year…
