Ethereum price is close to $2,000 for the first time ever as Bitcoin price just surpassed $55,000. The digital asset is still underperforming compared to most cryptocurrencies, but there is still hope for the bulls if they can conquer a critical resistance level.

However, on the 9-hour chart, the TD Sequential indicator has just presented a sell signal which has been reliable in the past. The next potential support level in case of a sell-off is located at $1,774, which more or less coincides with the lower trendline support of the ascending wedge pattern.
