One bullish candlestick pattern matches today's price action, the White Candle.
Crossing above the upper Bollinger Band for the first time since November 8th, prices have shown unusually strong upward momentum in the short-term. This could either indicate a potential buying climax after which prices might head back down towards the mean of the Bollinger Bands at 345.83 or signal the beginning of a strong momentum breakout leading to even higher prices. The last time prices broke out above the upper Bollinger Band on November 8th, ETHGBP actually lost -2.21% on the following trading day.
The trend is clearly bullish, showing an intact uptrend in the short, medium and long-term.
