Ethereum has seen a magnificent price surge totaling over 56% throughout the past 7 trading days. This price move has now allowed Ethereum to fly above the $200 level to where it currently is trading at around $265. The Ethereum coin has now created a fresh 8 month high after rising by a total of 121% over the past 90 trading days.

Ethereum remains in 2nd place amongst the top cryptocurrency coins by market cap value as it currently holds a $28.11 billion market cap, according to CoinMarketCap data. 

Looking at the ETH/USD 1-Day Chart:

  • Since our previous ETH/USD analysis, we can see ETH/USD surged above the resistance at $194 and $200, continuing higher until recently reaching resistance at the $280 level.
  • From above: The nearest level of resistance above $271 and $280 now lies at $300. The resistance at $300 is strengthened by a long term bearish .5 Fibonacci Retracement level (marked in red). Above $300, further resistance exists at $318, $340 and $350 (which also contains the bearish .618 Fibonacci Retracement level).
  • From below: The nearest level of support now sits between $250 – $247. Beneath this, further support lies at $240, $225, $200 and $194.
  • The RSI has reached overbought territory which could suggest that a retracement may be coming soon. This is further confirmed by the Stochastic RSI as it currently trades in overbought territory, primed for a bearish crossover.
