The 2017 Ethereum fractal, defined
Intimately, the 4 technical indicators are Stochastic RSI, Relative Power Index (RSI), Bullish Hammer, and a Fibonacci retracement stage. It began with the Bullish Hammer’s occurrence on Ether’s month-to-month chart in December 2017, adopted by a 7,000% value rally within the subsequent six months.

The complete bottom-to-top befell inside an ascending channel vary, with its 23.6% Fibonacci retracement stage serving as assist/resistance stage.
The 2021 fractal repeat up to now
Ether is nearly mirroring the strikes from the 2017 fractal because it heads into the ultimate quarter of 2021, albeit with out order.
Intimately, the Ethereum token rallied by 3,400% to over $4,300, sixteen months after portray a bullish Stochastic RSI cross (when its a %Ok line surged above the %D line). In the meantime, the large upside transfer—once more—pushed Ether’s month-to-month RSI into its overbought zone.
A consolidation interval adopted, which noticed Ether making a Bullish Hammer in July 2021, suggesting sellers had fashioned a value backside.
Jaydee_757, the pseudonymous analyst who first spotted the Ethereum fractal, highlighted the hammer’s potential to ship the Ether value flying, with a main upside goal sitting close to the two.618 Fib line (at round $13,000).
The bullish analogy additionally took cues from a possible Stochastic RSI bullish cross and a double prime RSI, ready to seem on Ether’s month-to-month chart within the subsequent “few months,” just like the one which coincided with the five hundred% value rally in 2018, as talked about above.
