- ETH reaches new all time high at 887.
- Surge upwards regardless of Bitcoin’s continued struggle.
- Not the only major altcoin surge as investors search for value.
- Possible bull-trap should positive Bitcoin correlation strengthen during a downtrend.
Ethereum has historically had high positive correlation with Bitcoin though on the 2nd Jan 17 it broke out of the 600-770 range to new all time highs. Now finding new support levels in the 800’s, the question is whether the correlation with Bitcoin will strengthen again and when. Should Bitcoin repeat the 17th Dec 2017 reprice Ethereum (and other altcoin majors) run the risk of being dumped along with their big brother.
Ethereum most likely will find continued support in the 800-900 range interim until Bitcoin decides on direction. There’s also possible future hikes as investors continue value hunting.
