Bitcoin’s price has climbed over 100% in 2023, but Ether has since lagged behind. All that could be changing now that ETHUSD broke above $2,000 and is now closing in on breaking up out of an ascending triangle pattern.

The LMACD is the logarithmic version of the Moving Average Convergence Divergence indicator, used to measure market momentum. With this significant momentum shift possibly brewing, the price per ETH could shoot much higher.
Immediately short-term targets of the ascending triangle could see Ether revisiting all-time highs soon enough. However, longer-term targets are closer to $10,000 per coin.
While this might have seemed out of reach in the past, the capital inflows a spot ETH ETF could bring into the market would range from billions to potentially trillions over time.
