Ethereum (ETH) Price Expected to Jump 20% Ahead of U.S. FOMC Minutes Publication?

The Ethereum price (ETH) is currently in a state of high instability at $1,670. Also, the monthly pivot for February is under a lot pressure. However, a number on-chain indicators suggest that ETH may rally, which could increase a bullish momentum, following the FOMC minutes due to be released tomorrow.
FOMC Data Acting as Catalyst
The minutes of the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) policy meeting will be released by the Federal Reserve of the United States on Wednesday, February 22 at 19:00 GMT. This was between January 31-February 1. The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC), which held its first policy meeting for the year, agreed to raise the federal funds rates by 25 basis points. This brings it to a range between 4.5 and 4.75%.

The total market capitalization for all cryptocurrencies dropped by 1.79% over the previous day at the time of writing. It now stands at $1.11 trillion.
Despite this, there are clear signs that Ethereum (ETH) price is consolidating around a critical monthly resistance level. ETH has made this barrier a support floor in shorter timeframes. Investors need to wait for a decisive breakout of the pennant to confirm that the second leg of this pattern has begun. Market experts believe that tomorrow’s FOMC minutes will be positive, which lends further credence to the altcoin king’s potential rally.
