Monthly ETHUSD Breakout Requiring Confirmation
This move is synchronized with another tentative breakout through the monthly resistance line highlighted in our cryptocurrencies corrective scenario published on June 1st. The corrective move seems to have run its course and a bull trend is now taking shape.

Should Ethereum confirm its bullish intentions the move should extend higher at least towards the monthly moving average.
Ethereum Could Strengthen Against Bitcoin
The Ethereum to Bitcoin price ratio has formed a triple bottom on the 0.025 level and could yet revert higher, which would make Ethereum a better place to invest compared with Bitcoin in the months ahead.

This possibility will be realized in case of a monthly close above the 7-period moving average (presently 0.035), which will require Ethereum to significantly outperform Bitcoin in the last third of the month of June. The possibility for this trend reversal to fail needs not be neglected as it would be deleterious for Ethereum if the ratio were to move below 0.025.
Ethereum is a Buy below 290 Dollar
Under the developing bullish conditions ETHUSD is a buy at the present level (but preferably below 290). The position should be protected with a stop order around 260.
