Ethereum outperformed Bitcoin this past weekend and remains trading above $1,200. The digital asset seems to be contained inside an ascending triangle pattern on the 4-hour chart and could see a breakout in the near term.
Ethereum price faces only one critical resistance level before new all-time high
On the 4-hour chart, Ethereum has established an ascending triangle pattern that is on the verge of bursting. There is a significant resistance level formed at $1,290, which is the top trendline of the pattern.

It’s important to note that despite Ethereum price rising higher, large investors are not taking profits just yet. The number of whales holding at least 1,000,000 ETH coins has increased since January 6. Similarly, the number of large investors holding between 100,000 and 1,000,000 coins has also been in an uptrend since December 30, 2020.

ETH IOMAP chart
The IOMAP model also indicates that Ethereum is currently sitting on top of a robust support area between $1,142 and $1,178. Failing to hold this range of support would be a significantly bearish indicator and would invalidate the bullish outlook.
