Ethereum Set to Surge by Over 50% Against Bitcoin: Fractal Analysis

Ethereum’s native token, Ether (ETH), is expected to see a significant surge of over 50% against its top-ranking rival, Bitcoin (BTC), in the coming months. This bullish prediction is based on a technical setup known as the inverse-head-and-shoulders (IH&S) pattern.

The IH&S pattern is characterized by the formation of three troughs below a common neckline resistance, with the middle trough (head) being deeper than the other two troughs (shoulders). In a “perfect” scenario, the price breaks above the neckline resistance after the formation of the right shoulder, resulting in a substantial price increase.

As of June 17, the ETH/BTC pair has formed what appears to be the head of its IH&S pattern and is currently awaiting an extended run-up towards the common neckline resistance level at around 0.061 BTC. Following this, the pair may experience a modest pullback and recovery to retest the neckline, completing the IH&S pattern formation.

If a successful breakout above the neckline occurs, accompanied by a rise in trading volumes, ETH/BTC’s upside target is projected to be around $0.084 by the end of the year, representing a more than 50% increase from current price levels.

Analyst Wolf anticipates a breakout scenario in the coming months, citing similarities with a previous IH&S breakout pattern from the 2019-2021 period that resulted in a 140% price surge following a decisive breakout in April 2021.

Additionally, ETH/BTC’s bullish outlook for 2024 is further supported by its historical post-Bitcoin halving price behavior. The pair has surged significantly following previous Bitcoin halving events, with the current consolidation phase potentially leading to a technical breakout if the IH&S pattern plays out as intended.

From a fundamental perspective, the potential launch of spot Ether exchange-traded funds (ETF) by July 2, as suggested by Bloomberg analysts, could trigger the bullish scenarios discussed above.
