One analyst believes that Ethereum’s Ether token (ETH), will launch a “parabolic attack” on Bitcoin to smash all highs.

TradingView and Cointelegraph Markets Pro data show that ETH/BTC is at three-year highs. But, its next move should prove even more powerful.

One of the few bullish stories in the crypto markets this month is Ether against Bitcoin (BTC).

Galaxy, a popular Twitter account, shared optimistic predictions about the largest altcoin.

He shared his excitement with followers by sharing a prediction chart.

“$ETH is about go into parabolic mode. You just have to wait to see what crazy things will happen.”

This week’s ETH/BTC price reached 0.085, the highest level since a short spike in May. Only 2018 is able to surpass that level, with some exchanges seeing a much higher ceiling than 2018.

The picture in dollars is similar, with Ether setting new records in November and remaining within 20 percent of $5,000 ever since.

“This should in theory be the part where strength continues, we see that strong run-based on structure,” Pentoshi, a fellow trader, tweeted as part separate comments on Ether Friday.

Although not all evidence points to the $5,000 level being dropped, ETH/USD was trading at approximately $4,550 at the time this article was written.

Bull case for Bitcoin bullies

Bitcoin is, however, still in a conservative mood.

Analysts are now beginning to believe that “bearish” views have more credibility after several weeks of poor price performance. However, they still remain bullish on BTC.

Bull case: OC supply dynamics, illiquid supply and LTH supply. HODL waves. OC oscillators have never experienced exuberance/reset in summer – Summer saw OC behavior that resembled bear market – Funds have new PnLs January and are eager to take on risk – Macro uncertainty

Cointelegraph reported that while on-chain metrics are not cause for concern, small cues such as long-term holder sales activity point to decreased conviction.

After rising to “neutral” territory last week, Sentiment is now back in “fear”, the Crypto Fear & Greed Index measuring 31/100.
