CoinGape reports that as per the technical chart, Ethereum’s price has given a breakout above the $1,745 level after making a double bottom formation. Other technical indicators indicate a rally continuation going forward. If traders maintain their open buy orders it may lead to a potential 12.25% breakout to reach $1,958. If prices cross the $2,000 mark, the cryptocurrency will see a significant turning point.
