Ethereum (ETH), the second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap, has broken above $3,000 with ease and continues to pare back Bitcoin’s market dominance. Bitcoin’s market dominance is now around 46.5%, a low last seen in August 2018, with Ethereum’s dominance now seen at 17.2%. Ethereum is up 30% over the last 7 days and continues to out-perform Bitcoin with the ETH/BTC spread now back above 600.

The daily ETH/USD chart shows how easily the $3,000 level was broken and suggests that ETH/USD will continue to point higher. The CCI indicator is showing that Ethereum is overbought, while the 14-day ATR shows that volatility is at record levels and again suggests a level of caution.

Dogecoin (DOGE) is back in vogue and is also making a new all-time high. The meme coin is now the fifth-largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization - $56.9 billion – and is up 58% in the last 7 seven days and 15% in the last 24 hours alone. The daily chart shows that the 0.44/0.45 level is currently blocking further upside and Dogecoin will need to break this zone with conviction if it is to press ever higher.
