Ethereum price is trying to break higher; The bulls target the $3,600 close to confirm a new bullish extension

For a bullish breakout to be valid, the close and Chikou Span must be above the cloud, with the Chikou Span also above the candlesticks. This can only happen with a close at or above $3,600.
