Now, Ethereum has picked up a lot of momentum with a move that started on December 29 where Ethereum managed to surge 3.8% against Bitcoin and has seen good continuation today with a 2% surge breaking above the 26-period EMA.


Bitcoin’s dominance over the market has been really significant in 2019 but is starting to slow down for the past few weeks. Ethereum lost a lot of market dominance in 2019 from an 11.9% dominance in January 2019 to a current low of 7.5%, however, the recent move against Bitcoin might help Ethereum get back some of that market dominance.

The weekly chart is still in favor of the bears, however, a temporary bottom seems to have been set at $116.2 as the bulls managed to create 2 bullish reversal candlesticks during the last two weeks.
