Ethereum Took $2100, Heading Towards $2500

Market picture

The crypto market continues to move higher, adding another 0.8% overnight to $1.44 trillion as Greed stays as a major driver right now, according to a popular sentiment indicator.

Friday morning saw a fresh test of the $38K level for Bitcoin. It failed, but we continue to see the persistence of growth attempts and less and less deep retreats from local peaks. The dynamics of November lead us to believe that the chances of the price rising by another 2.5K and exceeding the $40K level are higher than the chances of it falling by the same amount to $35K.

Ethereum crossed the $2100 level, returning to the peak set on 10 November. There was a classic Fibonacci retracement with a 61.8% pullback from the initial rally. Breaking through the $2135 level will set up the main scenario of a 161.8% growth, which in this case is close to $2500.
