While the Bitcoin fear and greed index saw a 6 point surge in 2 days, the bulls gained some motion as Bitcoin and Ethereum were up by more than 2.5% over the past 24-hours.

ETh saw a decent 9.07% recovery over the past three days in anticipation of a bullish divergence that occurred between the RSI and the price action (yellow trendline). But this rally was halted at the $4,000-level as the bulls test that level for the second time now.
ETH bulls will need to back their rallies up with increasing volumes to flip the $4,000-mark as support. The RSI found near-term resistance at the 59-mark while it headed toward the half-line. The DMI showed a bearish bias but could not flash a strong directional trend for ETH.
