ETH/USD – Ether Reclaims $2000
Key Support Levels: $1888, $1800, $1710.
Key Resistance Levels: $2160 – $2200, $2300, $2500.
Etheruem was trading within a range between $2035 (Feb highs) and $1710 (mid-March support) last week. The cryptocurrency dropped beneath the 200-day MA over the weekend and fell into the lower boundary of this range on Saturday.
Luckily, the bulls quickly regrouped again to close Saturday’s candle above $1800. Since the weekend low, ETH has pushed higher by 17.5% as it breaks back above the 200-day MA and reclaims the $2000 handle.
It would still need to close above the February highs at $2036 to confirm a breakout of last week’s range.
ETH-USD Short Term Price Prediction
Looking ahead, if the buyers push beyond $2000, the first strong resistance lies between $2160 (bearish .382 Fib) and $2200 (20-day MA). This is followed by $2300 (bearish .5 Fib), $2500 (100-day MA), and $2600 (50-day MA).
On the other side, the first support lies at $1888 (.886 Fib & 200-day MA). This is followed by $1800, $1710 (mud-March support), and $1625 (downside 1.272 Fib Extension).
The daily RSI printed bullish divergence over the weekend as it made a higher low while the price action stayed level. It has since pushed higher toward the midline, which indicates decreasing bearish momentum within the market.
