Ethereum price still needs confirmation to move higher
Ethereum price is trading higher with significant gains but witnesses a little pullback from the higher levels. A continued buying pressure is required to close above the psychological $2,800 mark.
The upside momentum is expected to continue in the short term as buying pressure remains consistent. As a result, the first upside hurdle from the current levels could be located at $2,830. ETH price must give a daily close above this level along with above-average volumes.
Next, ETH bulls will face some resistance at the 50-day EMA (Exponential Moving Average) at $2,880.
Expect a windfall gain as the price will prepare for a jump to a $3,200 horizontal level following the attainment of $2,880 mark. This will be a crucial milestone for the bulls.
Investors will further look for additional gains toward the critical 200-EMA placed at $3,545.78.
On the flip side, a rejection toward the descending trend line will invalidate the bullish outlook for the asset. The immediate downside target could be found at $2,400.
RSI: The daily Relative Strength Index reads at 49 above the average line. However, the bullish divergence since February 22 capped the downside in the price.
MACD: The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) hovers below the midline with a neutral outlook.
