Ethereum's native token Ether (ETH) is likely to hit its own record high in the short term as ETH has broken above $4,000, a crucial resistance level.Ethereum breaks $4,000, nearing new all-time high
ETH price rallied on Oct. 20 by over 5% to approach $4,100 on the Coinbase exchange for the first time since May 2021. The cryptocurrency's run-up above $4,000 appeared primarily in the wake of Bitcoin (BTC) breaking above $65,000 to enter price discovery.

As a result, Bitcoin's ability to enter price discovery opens up similar prospects for Ether, which still trades a few hundred dollars below its current all-time high of $4,385.

"If BTC broke to new all-time highs, I don't see why ETH wouldn't," commented Rekt Capital, an independent market analyst, adding:"Turn ~$4,000 into support, and ETH will levitate towards $4,400 for a break to new All-Time Highs." ETH price ascending triangle setup
ETH's latest pump boosted its year-to-date profits by almost 450%, compared to Bitcoin's 130% returns in the same period. That also raised the possibility of Ether posting better gains than Bitcoin in the coming sessions, thereby achieving levels much higher than Rekt Capital's $4,400-target.
