One closely watched crypto market indicator – the ETH/BTC spread – is pushing towards a new all-time high and the technical outlook for the longer-term remains positive. The daily chart shows the spread continuing to rally off the mid-October multi-month low with the acceleration this week taking it through a zone of resistance between 794 and 815 with relative ease. While the CCI indicator currently shows this spread as heavily overbought, this zone should now turn to support and pave the way for further gains. This spread is closely watched as it normally indicates a period of alt-coin outperformance against the market leader. While some consolidation may be seen in the coming days, another indicator on the weekly chart is completing another bullish signal.
