The latest $ETH leg shows some promise of upwards lift.

Ether showed strong upwards moves during five 4 hour sessions late on the evening of the 27th. A later spike pushed a session high to $145.42 at noon on the 29th for a four hour session scope of $13.42. The high did not hold and the candlestick pattern shows bulls testing $ETH resistance as ether climbs higher.

The up trend scenario of today and ether (report generation) last price of $135.68 contrasts starkly against this month’s – and this year’s – December 15 2018 low of $81.79.
