Ethereum has been closely tracking Bitcoin and the aggregated market over the past several days, which has led ETH to experience some intense volatility as it ranges between lows of $250 and highs of $285.
In spite of Bitcoin’s overt bearishness at the moment, it is important to note that Ethereum has been forming a highly bullish market structure that could lead it significantly higher in the near-term.
One top trader is noting that this market structure could lead the cryptocurrency to $400 in the near-term, which would mark a significant climb from its current 2020 highs of $290 that were set at the peak of its recent parabolic rally.
