Ethereum price outlook and analysis

ETH/USD Chart by TradingView

Ethereum’s price outlook shows it has overcome resistance at $1,250. The momentum has increased significantly since the breakout. The moving averages now support the price, with the 20-day MA attempting to close above the 50-day MA. Ethereum has maintained movement above the short-term ascending trendline and trades with higher highs and higher lows.

What next for ETH?

Ethereum price is set for the $1,350 level in the current bullish run. A break above this zone will see buyers target $1,450 next. Still, we set a price target at or above $1,600, the established resistance. For ETH to hit the price level, bulls must keep price above the ascending trendline and moving averages. However, short-term corrections are expected at the near-term resistances of $1,350 and $1,450.
