According to coinschedule October (~$400mm)had much less ICO issuance than November (~$800mm) Coincidentally the SEC is starting to go after the ICO scam artists, something thats been sorely needed as people (aka “Investors”) can’t be relied upon to do their own due diligence. Regulation should help remove some scams and improve the quality of the ICO offerings.
While I had soured on the price of Ethereum as a result, it appears (its still VERY early) that if this ICO market can slow issuance the price of Ethereum could propel.
From a technical perspective you could argue a move through $350 would signal “breakout” and possibly higher prices.
Plus the Bitcoin fork is out of the way – it appears Bitcoin price was propelled by many looking to collecting a “free” bitcoin when the segwit2x for took place. Its common for traders to sell ethereum, litecoin or other “alts” to go long Bitcoin (and vice versa).
