The current price consolidation near the resistance is an indication of a possible breakout

Since November 24, Ethereum bulls have failed to break above $620 overhead resistance. Now, on December 7, there is overwhelming selling pressure above the $620 resistance which has compelled Ether to a range-bound movement.

Ethereum Price Long-Term Analysis: Bullish

On December 4, Ether fluctuated between $560 and $620 because of difficulty in penetrating the resistance level. The current price consolidation near the resistance is an indication of a possible breakout. 

A breakout at the resistance will accelerate price movement on the upside. The biggest altcoin will rally to $800 if the bullish momentum is sustained. Meanwhile, the crypto is trading at $594 at the time of writing. The current price range will continue as long as the price momentum is sustained above $550.
