ETH/USD: Four-hour chart
Adding credence to the bullish bias, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) has retreated from the overbought zone, hovering just below the 70 level. This suggests that there is potential for the next leg to the upside.
The pattern target is measured at $2369, although it could be a bumpy ride for the ETH bulls on their northwards journey.
An Immediate downside could likely be capped by the bullish 21-simple moving average (SMA) at $1902.i
The next cushion is aligned at $1843, the 50-SMA, below which the pattern support at $1809 could be tested. A sustained break below the latter could invalidate the bullish breakout, as the sellers would then eye the 100-HMA at $1771.
