ETH/USD opened at $2,369 today after a strong push lower to the $2,040 was made early yesterday. Later an equally strong push higher resulted in a market close below the $2,400 resistance. Overnight ETH/USD pushed lower again until support was found at $2,200 over the last hours.

ETH/USD 4-hour chart – ETH retests support at $2,200

Looking at the 4-hour chart, we can see the Ethereum price action testing the $2,200 as of now. If a further downside is not seen, ETH/USD should rally once again later today.

As described in our previous Ethereum price prediction, ETH moved to retest support at the $2,000 mark yesterday. However, support was found slightly higher around the $2,050 mark, meaning a slightly higher low, and the 4th retest of support around the $2,040-$2,080 support area.

Overall Ethereum has lost a lot of its momentum over the past days after a new all-time high was set around the $2,646 mark on Thursday, resulting in a several-day gain of almost 30 percent. From there another spike lower was seen to the $2,040 support, from which a small rebound was seen late yesterday.

Overnight, ETH/USD regained some of the loss and peaked just below the $2,400 resistance. From there, ETH moved lower over the past hours towards support at $2,200. If this support is broken, we should see further downside to the previous four times retested $2,040 support. 

Alternatively, if the $2,200 support holds ETH/USD from further downside, we can expect a higher low established, with the next target to the upside seen at $2,550. From there, bulls will likely attempt to set further all-time highs next week.

Ethereum Price Prediction: Conclusion 

Ethereum price prediction is bullish as the market has retraced again and currently tests support at $2,200. If it holds, Ethereum price should see further highs later today, with the next resistance target at $2,550.
