Ethereum price aims for new yearly highs ahead of ETH 2.0 upgrade

  • Ethereum price managed to bounce back up from a low point of $481 on November 26.
  • The next critical resistance level is established at $623, the 2020-high.

Like the majority of cryptocurrencies, Ethereum has managed to recover from its 23% crash and it’s aiming to hit higher highs on Monday. There seems to be very little opposition above as bulls are eying up $720.

Ethereum price needs to climb above $623 to reach higher highs

The current price of ETH is $604 after a slight rejection from $615. The nearest and most critical resistance level is located at $623, which is the 2020-high established on November 24. On the daily chart, the MACD turned red briefly on November 28 before recovering in the next 24 hours.

Using the Fibonacci Retracement indicator on the 4-hour chart, we can determine some potential price targets for ETH bulls. The nearest level at 1 is $624 which coincides with the high of $623, a major resistance level. A breakout above this point can quickly push Ethereum price to the 1.618 Fib level at $720.

On the other hand, the TD Sequential indicator has presented a sell signal on the 4-hour chart – in the form of a green nine candle – while the RSI just touched overextended levels, adding even more selling pressure. Validation of the signal could push Ethereum price to the 100-SMA at $560.

Other potential bearish price targets for Ethereum include the low of $547, which is right below the 100-SMA at $560. Then comes the 50-SMA at $520 and finally the last low established on November 26 at $481.
