Ethereum Price Poised to Hit $5k
The trader states that :
If ETH is to follow in the footsteps of BTC and BTC .D starts its trend down from here on out for about 6~12 months I can see ETH hitting 5k if BTC hits 50k+. I do see a deep correction after hitting 1.4k within the next couple of weeks to come back down to test 800~900 level which would be the dip to buy.
