As reported by NewsBTC’s Aayush Jindal Ethereum closing above its daily candle above $392 could trigger further gains:

“To start a strong rally, ether must clear the $390 resistance and then settle above $392. A successful close above the $392 resistance may perhaps initiate a larger upward move (similar to bitcoin if it clears $14,000) towards the $405 and $412 levels. Any further gains could lead the price towards the $420 resistance level.”

ETH just did so when it closed its daily candle some 30 minutes ago as of this article’s writing.

Fundamentals Positive for ETH

This rally comes on Ethereum 2.0’s (ETH2 or Serenity) launch being confirmed for December 1st, barring any bugs. The Ethereum 2.0 deposit contract has been released, as confirmed by Vitalik Buterin, Danny Ryan, and others in the ETH space.

Analysts think that this is pivotal for the bull case as it imbues ETH with a staking premium, where staking participants can earn coins over time by validating the network.

Ethereum will continue higher over time as the technological improvements that come with ETH2 are also released, which should further benefit usage.
