Ethereum saw an impressive 31% price surge over the past week of trading. It started the week off by jumping from a rising trend line at around $235 and pushing above the upper boundary of an ascending triangle at $250.
ETH then went on a rampage as it swooped past the previous 2020 high at $287 to break above $300. After breaking $300, it continued higher until reaching the $320 level, where it met resistance. It has since dropped to the $307 level at the time of writing.
ETH-USD Short Term Price Prediction
Looking ahead, if the bulls continue to drive ETH above $320, resistance is expected at $333. This is followed by added resistance at $342, $350, and $357.
On the other side, the first level of strong support lies at $300. Beneath this, support is found at $297 (.236 Fib Retracement), $287, and $280 (.382 Fib Retracement). Further support is located at $268 (.5 Fib Retracement), and $255 (.618 Fib Retracement).
The RSI has hit extremely overbought levels, not seen since February 2020. This suggests the bulls maybe a little overextended, and we should see some form of brief retracement. Additionally, the Stochastic RSI is ready for a bearish crossover signal that would help to send the market lower.
