Key Support Levels: $2800, $2600, $2380.
Key Resistance Levels: $3000, $3070, $3250.
ETH is attempting a recovery from last week’s market capitulation with a 9.7% price hike today, allowing it to break above $2800 and climb beyond the 50-day MA again. The cryptocurrency fell beneath the 50-day MA last week during the cryptocurrency market correction as it dropped to $2400.
The ETH price drop continued over the weekend, falling as low as $1800 on Sunday. However, the bulls did manage to close Sunday’s daily candle above $2000. Since the weekend, ETH has been rebounding and is now up by 37% since Monday.
Additionally, today’s price hike allowed ETH to break resistance at $2760, provided by a bearish .382 Fib Retracement.

Looking ahead, the first level of higher resistance lies at $3000. This is followed by $3070 (bearish .5 Fib), $3250 (20-day MA), and $3380 (bearish .618 Fib).
On the other side, the first support now lies at $2800 (50-day MA). This is followed by $2600, $2380, $2300 (100-day MA), and $2050 (Sunday’s closing price).
The RSI has now returned back to the midline, indicating that the bearish momentum has dissipated, and the market is now in a state of indecision.
