Ethereum (ETH) price gains for a second straight day on Wednesday. ETH has formed some bullish technical setup anticipating a short-term upside rally toward $3,200.
- Ethereum (ETH) price trades modestly higher on Wednesday.
- Investors need to push above $2,800 with above an average volume to sustain the gains.
- Immediate upside hurdles are placed at 200 and 50-day EMAs.
The world’s second-largest digital asset has not been on the radar of the institutional inflows as Bitcoin remained their top priority. As per the CoinShares fund manager, there have been $109 million inflows. 81% of this total fund or $88.5 million has gone into Bitcoin (BTC) based funds.
On the other hand, Ethereum-based funds witnessed an outflow of $15.2 million according to the report.
As of press time, ETH/USD is trading at $2,708.38, up 2.65% for the day.
ETH anticipate upside continuation
On the daily chart, Ethereum’s (ETH) price has rallied 52% from the January lows of $2,159 to the swing highs of $3,284.75. However, ETH bulls remain unwilling to carry forward the gains as sellers return to collect the liquidity near $2,550.
The formation of ‘inverted hammer’ followed by two green candlesticks suggests bulls are ready to take another leap to test the upside filters.
With above an average volumes ETH/USD looks comfortable to test the first resistance hurdle at 50-day EMA (Exponential Moving Average) at $3,025.55 followed by the 200-EMA at $3,317.23.
Although the above-mentioned scenario looks possible for now but a reversal toward $2,500 could invalidate the bullish theory.
On the downside, the ETH price could retest the January lows of $2,159.0.
RSI: The Daily Relative Strength Index (RSI) still hovers below the mid-line while reading at 41.
MACD: The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) held below the midline with a neutral bias.
Conclusion: Momentum oscillators paint a mixed picture. The price must produce a daily candlestick close above $2,800 to sustain the upside gains.
