Technical Indicators

Trading Volume: While the price went up, the volume went down. If the overall market turns bearish or enters a pullback, ETH appears weak and can fall under $3,000 again.

RSI: The daily RSI has moved to 60 points, placing it on the bullish side. The buyers need to sustain this level, otherwise, ETH is vulnerable to selling pressure.

MACD: While the daily MACD is bullish, the histogram confirms a loss of momentum. If the histogram makes a lower high, then it is best to take that as a warning. This can quickly be erased if buyers step in.

The current bias for ETH is bullish. However, ETH appears weak with decreasing volume and is losing momentum. The resistance at $3,400 may be hard to pass for that reason.

Short-Term Price Prediction for ETH

Even if ETH is above $3,000, this latest price action can quickly reverse if selling pressure intensifies. The loss of momentum and low volume is a concern. Nevertheless, the current market favors bulls, and ETH can benefit from that. Should the price continue to go up from here, the next key resistance is found at $3,400.
