ETH/USD chart - Dec 13 - FXOpen

On the hourly chart, the price action formed an ascending channel. Then a breakout occurred from the downside and another ascending structure appeared. All of these bounces are the part of a symmetrical triangle.

As the altcoin price is getting close to its apex, we are going to see a breakout soon and as this is a symmetrical triangle a breakout from both sides is equally probable.

The breakout from the upside is expected, as most likely that this triangle is a correction to the upside after a down move, which will continue thereafter.

If the Ethereum goes down, a retest of the prior low level at $82 would be a most likely scenario.
