3.5% rise at the start of the US session

As usual, the opening of the American session is characterized by a movement contrary to the general trend during the European session. And today is no exception. Indeed, ether, which has spent the majority of the day in the red, is rising towards $1300 at the opening of the US session.

On top of that, this rise comes as the price of this crypto stagnates around the $1,280 support. Thus, this could be the start of a bull run for Ethereum. However, several levels of resistance seem to stand against a bull run. Some of these important resistance areas include the $1480, $1650 and $2000 level.

The breakout of these resistances seems to be the surest signal to predict a bull run on the term. Buying ether now seems like a pretty risky investment. Thus, the best thing to do would be to take short intra-day positions while Ethereum is in the red.
