- The potential shown by BTC/USD makes it difficult to put a limit on the rise.
- ETH/USD can fly higher than $290 with a target of $340.
- XRP/USD seeks to breach $0.47 looking for primary target at $0.55.
It's been full moon night in Europe as Bitcoin takes advantage of the good omen to soar to price levels unthinkable six months ago.
The BTC/USD pair managed to escape the long-term bearish channel and has only needed a few hours to start showing strength and setting a new relative high.
Now, in my opinion, the first condition for declaring the Crypto market fully bullish - BTC/USD above $8,150 - is fulfilled, but the second condition that requires Ethereum to do better than Bitcoin consistently is missing.
The ETH/BTC pair is of paramount importance in this market. There are two ways to accumulate Bitcoin, the first by buying it directly from the market. The second way is to balance the portfolio towards the Altcoins and especially towards the Ethereum.
Ethereum has a strong potential for revaluation against Bitcoin if we take as a reference to previous bull markets. In December 2017, the ETH/BTC pair reached 0.1520 (Bitcoins per Ethereum) and is currently at 0.0294. With this data, it is possible to assume a multiple of 5X. Do calculations on your portfolios.
