Ethereum traded above $2,000 to start the weekend, as the token hit its highest point since May. The crypto markets were back in the green, after marginal consolidation in Friday’s session. Bitcoin moved closer to $25,000 on Saturday, but has yet to breach this ceiling.
Bitcoin (BTC) was marginally higher on Saturday, as the token once again attempted to climb above the $25,000 level.
After a low of $23,657.27 on Friday, BTC/USD hit an intraday high of $24,860.05 to start the weekend.
The move saw bitcoin briefly break out of the $24,600 resistance level, spending nearly two months above $24,900 in the process.
Looking at the chart, today’s rally comes as the 14-day relative strength index (RSI) finally broke out of its long-term resistance at the 60.32 level.
At the time of writing, the index is following at 61.60, which is slightly below another point of uncertainty, at 61.80.
Overall, earlier gains have pared somewhat, with BTC currently trading at $24,407.29, as bulls appeared to have abandoned earlier positions to lock in profits.
While BTC struggled to break out of a key $25,000 point, ethereum (ETH) rallied past its own ceiling in today’s session.
On Saturday, prices of the world’s second-largest token rose above $2,000 for the first time since May.
After a low of $1,868.42 on Friday, ETH/USD moved to a high of $2,013.76 earlier in today’s session.
This is the highest point ethereum has traded at since May 23, and comes as price strength has also risen past a ceiling of its own.
Looking at the chart, the RSI also rallied past the 68 resistance level and is currently trailing at 71.55, which is the strongest reading since April 4.
At the time of writing, ethereum is now overbought, which could see bears gradually looking to position themselves to get back into the market.
