ETH price seeks upside reversal
ETH price has been trading in a short-term consolidation since January 9, the range extends from $2,500 and $3,200. However, the price surged nearly 44% from the lows of $2,445, the Fibonacci extension with a swing high of $3,581.60.
Furthermore, the price retreated sharply with a descent of 24% to the recent lows of $2,716. This also coincides with the 0.786% Fibonacci retracement level, which acted as a firm support level. But, the upside face strong upside hurdle near $3,000. A resurgence in the buying momentum would push the price above $3,000 followed by the $3,200.
The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) scrolls below the midline but with an increasing upside momentum. Any uptick in the oscillator would advocates the jump in the price.
