Ethereum was once again trading above $1,300, as the cryptocurrency price rallied at the start of the weekend. Markets are back in the green on Saturday after a volatile week, which came as the US dollar continued to strengthen. Bitcoin also edged higher, back above $19,000.
Bitcoin (BTC) rallied back above $19,000 on Saturday, as the crypto market edged higher to start the weekend.
Earlier in today’s session BTC/USD rose to an intraday high of $19,237.39, coming less than a day after hitting a low of $18,770.97.
Today’s high saw the token move away from its recent support point of $18,900, following a false breakout during yesterday’s trading session.
Looking at the chart, the price rally has also pushed the 14-day relative strength index (RSI) higher and it is now approaching a resistance point of its own.
As of writing, the index is tracking at 46.35 points, slightly lower than the resistance level of 48.00.
If we see this ceiling broken, then BTC The bulls may be one step closer to reclaiming the $20,000 mark.
Ethereum also traded higher at the start of the weekend, when the token rallied after a volatile trading week.
After dropping to a low of $1,260.67 on Friday, ETH/USD was back above $1,300 on Saturday, hitting a high of $1,306.71 in the process.
Like with bitcoin above, today’s rise has seen ethereum bounce off the critical support of $1,270 and now of course hit resistance.
The aforementioned ceiling of $1,330, was not touched on Tuesday, when bearish pressure moved the price below this point.
However, bullish sentiment seems to be returning with the RSI currently tracking at 45.90, slightly below the 46.00 ceiling.
If momentum remains focused on the upside, we will likely see this point broken later this week and the token once again above $1,330.
