Ethereum’s native token Ether (ETH) has plunged by more than 20% after establishing its record high at around $4,867 on Nov. 10, 2021. Nonetheless, the sharp price pullback does not mean ETH can’t pursue a new record high in the next few months, as several widely-tracked technical, macroeconomic and on-chain indicators suggest.
One of these indicators envisions Ether’s price reaching $5,000 in the first quarter of 2022 while others look are poised to support the bullish bias.

In detail, falling wedges begin wide at the top but contract as the price moves lower. As a result, the price action forms a conical shape that trends lower as the reaction highs and reaction lows converge. Traders realize a bullish bias only after the price decisively breaks above the wedge’s resistance.
As a result, expectations remain high that the ETH price would break above its falling wedge resistance in the coming sessions. In doing so, it would rise by as much as the maximum distance between the wedge’s upper and lower trendline when measured from the breakout point.
