Ethereum reaches for the stars 

Market picture 

The cryptocurrency market is hitting new highs, bringing its capitalisation to $2.58 trillion (+2.4% in 24 hours). But today, bitcoin is one of the market’s laggards, up 1.2%, as growth is concentrated in the largest altcoins. 

Ethereum is up 5% in 24 hours, and BNB went up as much as 9%, about the same as Dogecoin. Cardano is up a modest 0.45%. Sentiment remains in extreme greed territory. 

Ethereum is approaching the $4000 level, confidently making the second-largest contribution to market cap gains after Bitcoin. A similar overbought condition in Ethereum on a weekly timeframe was not seen until 2021. Given that this is the first such overbought condition after a prolonged bear market, be prepared for the move to continue. It’s hard to see any significant resistance until $4100. However, like BTC, ETH is well positioned to test the highs of $4700 without significant corrections.
