Ethereum Price Analysis: Following the BTC Flash Crash, ETH Takes Aim at ATH Again

Key Support level: $3,900

Key Resistance level: $4,380

Ethereum missed breaking the all-time high by less than $5 dollars today and is now preparing for another attempt after a sharp rejection (13% drop on Bitstamp). As we reported earlier, Bitcoin flash crashed on numerous exchanges and even dipped by 87% on Binance US for a second. This dragged the entire market down, but it seems that prices are now recovering.

The bulls quickly bought the support line at $3,900 after the price was rejected, showing that this move has the strength to push us above the key resistance at $4,380, which is also the ETH all-time high.

The ETH bias can be considered as extremely bullish, with the price having recently been rejected from the all-time high by a very thin margin and now recovering.

At the time of this writing, ETH is attempting another break of resistance. It’s interesting to see, though, if the bears will reject the price once again at this key technical and psychological level.
