17 Dec Analyst: Ethereum to Rally 20%+ Against BTC as Market Goes Parabolic
- Ethereum has been trailing slightly behind Bitcoin and the rest of the crypto market as of late, which comes as all eyes shift to watch BTC’s price action
- Although it has lagged behind it, ETH is still showing some immense signs of strength as it pushes towards $700, with analysts widely watching for it to see further upside
- Most altcoins are currently trailing behind the gains seen by Bitcoin, which is a fairly standard occurrence within parabolic BTC bull markets
- As seen last night when Bitcoin faced a rejection at $23,700, ETH’s price rocketed by nearly 8%
- This seems to be emblematic of a capital rotation even out of Bitcoin and into altcoins
Bitcoin has been caught within the throes of an intense bull trend over the past few days, which has positively impacted Ethereum and most other altcoins.
Ethereum’s price action has been growing increasingly bullish as Bitcoin continues producing strong tailwinds.
There’s a strong possibility that once BTC’s uptrend stalls and it sees some consolidation, investors will rapidly rotate capital into ETH and other altcoins to outperform the benchmark crypto.
One analyst believes that this will happen in the coming days, potentially allowing ETH to gain 20%+ against Bitcoin.
Ethereum Shows Signs of Strength as Market-Wide Rally Kicks Off
At the time of writing, Ethereum is trading up just over 4% at its current price of $665. This is around the price at which it has been trading throughout the morning, facing some resistance just above its current price.
Where it trends in the mid-term may depend largely on Bitcoin, which has been guiding the entire market.
However, BTC’s rejection at $23,700 last night actually helped send Ethereum rocketing higher, which may mean that Bitcoin dips will prove to be beneficial for altcoins.
Analyst: ETH Likely to See a Parabolic Upswing
He specifically notes that it should rise by 20% or more by the end of the week.
“I think that was a capitulation low on eth/btc, $eth parabola soon and should be +20% by end of week.”

The coming few days should shine some serious light on where Ethereum and the entire market will trend in the coming weeks.
