After trading below $1,100 for the past few days, ETH/USD rose to a peak of $1,165.68 earlier in today’s session.

Although earlier gains have somewhat eased, ETH is currently still trading above $1,100, with bulls looking to move past a key resistance level.

This ceiling is the $1,150 point, where some bulls exited, however with the 10-day moving average on the cusp of an upward cross with the 25-day MA, bullish sentiment remains.

Should this cross take place, the pressure will likely increase, sending prices not only above the resistance, but potentially over $1,200.
