First a new local high is achieved (A).
Then a fairly deep correction occurs (B). In hindsight (B) always looks like a great time to buy, but remember, in the moment the pattern has not played out yet and it can be risky to try to scalp the bottom of a retracement.
Price consolidates on a slowly building upward trajectory (C) creating support as bullishness slowly overwhelms fear.
Bulls retest previous high and break through with enough momentum (D), carrying the price to the next . In the case of ETHUSD , the next is ~$1420, ETH’s prior all time high from January 2018.
