Ethereum Soars 23% Weekly To New 30-Month High: Is $600 Incoming? (ETH Price Analysis)
ETH/USD – Ethereum Returns To June 2018 Price Levels
Key Support Levels: $550, $521, $500.
Key Resistance Levels: $580, $600, $620.
Ethereum broke the $500 level for the first time in 2020 last Friday as it surged into the $511 resistance. Yesterday, the bulls continued to drive ETH even higher as they closed the day slightly above the $548 resistance (bearish .618 Fib Retracement).
Today, after a retest of the same $511 resistance turned support level, the bulls penetrated $550 to reach as high as $568.50 – where they met resistance at a 1.414 Fib Extension and as of writing these lines – ETH is trading on that level. This latest price surge put Ethereum at a fresh 30-Month High as it reached prices not seen since June 2018.
ETH-USD Short Term Price Prediction
Looking ahead, once the bulls break $568.50 – $570, the first level of resistance is expected at $580. This is followed by resistance at $600 (1.618 Fib Extension and psychological level). If the bulls continue beyond $600, resistance lies at $620, $650, and $675 (bearish .786 Fib Retracement).
On the other side, the first level of support lies at $550. Beneath this, support lies at $521 (.236 Fib), $500, and $470 (.5 Fib).
The RSI is in overbought territory and has been the highest since early August – suggesting the bulls might be overextending slightly, and correction might be coming up before new highs.
