Ethereum Price Forecast: ETH upswing toward $2,000 in jeopardy as key technical pattern emerges

Ethereum fights to regain the position above $1,800 but is still vulnerable to declines.
A rising wedge pattern on the 4-hour chart hints at the impending breakdown.
Support above $1,800 will keep bulls focused on highs beyond $2,000.
Ethereum had closed in on $2,000 from the beginning of the week. However, the momentum lost steam slightly above $1,800, leaving $1,900 untested. A minor correction followed, but support at $1,755 remained intact. At the time of writing, Ether is trading at $1,794 amid the push to regain the ground above $1,800 and secure the remaining journey to $2,000.

A rising wedge pattern occurs amid an uptrend. It signifies that the uptrend is nearing the end as bulls get exhausted. On the other hand, bears begin to get excited about taking over the control. A breakdown happens when the price finally slices through the lower trendline. Note that the move tends to be rapid, and therefore to take maximum advantage of it, traders have to time it accurately.
