The weekend on Ethereum market was quite positive for buyers. Buyers kept the local range $194-196 on Friday and found a way to repeated test of $216. For the next two days, we see a steady Ethereum price growth by 3% daily. On Sunday, buyers updated the local hich and closed both the daily and weekly candles. As a result, in the first hours of the new daily candle, Ethereum price has risen by almost 5%, stopping at around the mark $216.

If we analyze the volumes of trades, then on the weekend they were almost the same. However, the dominance of active purchases over active sales these days has been different. On Saturday, market purchases were 10% higher than market sales. On Sunday, buyers were more aggressive and raised market purchases indicator to 20%. Thus, we see the growth of buyers’ confidence in Ethereum market. And our main scenario – a breakdown of $216 and the growth continuation to $250, is highly likely.
