Ethereum price is back below the key level of $3,500 after pulling back from Tuesday’s high. The trend exhibited by this altcoin is comparable to that of the leading crypto – Bitcoin. At the time of writing, the latter entity was down by 1.49% at $50,731.26. In the previous session, it had surged to a high of $51,897.72.
Despite the current pullback, cryptocurrencies will likely record further gains in the short term. This perspective is founded on the shift in risk sentiment. After extreme fear gripped the market in the past week, greed is now the key emotion driving the market. In Wednesday’s session, the crypto fear & greed index is at a greed level of 59.
