Ethereum has been one of the strongest major altcoins throughout the past several weeks, being able to rally from lows of $370 to highs of $490 in the span of just a few days.
This intense strength, however, faltered yesterday, when its price began reeling lower until it hit lows of $377. This erased virtually all of its recent gains, and has put it back into the same consolidation phase that it was trading in just over a week ago.
It is important to note that while Ethereum is simply trading where it was just a week ago, Bitcoin is now down at lows not seen in over a month.
This has led one analyst to note that he believes ETH will far outperform BTC in the near-term.
Ethereum Stabilizes Following Sharp Selloff
The selling pressure seen yesterday was quite intense and forced Ethereum to dive from highs of $450 to lows of $377.
After tapping these lows, it was able to post a sharp rebound, although it has yet to climb back into the lower-$400 region.
At the time of writing, ETH is trading up 4% at its current price of $398. If it is able to surmount $400, it may be poised to see further upside.
Analyst: ETH Better Poised to Rally Than Bitcoin
