Overnight the Ethereum price action paused and retested $2,700 previous resistance as support and, from there, started trading higher over the past hours.

Ethereum price has seen good performance over the past week. After establishing support at the $2,170 mark, Ethereum started trading higher over the following days. Some resistance was found at the $2,550 mark. However, after some consolidation, another push higher was made until resistance was found below the $2,700 mark, as mentioned in our previous Ethereum price prediction.

Yesterday, ETH/USD moved above the $2,700 after some initial rejection for further upside. After a strong push higher was made, the $2,700 resistance was now retested as support. From there, ETH/USD started moving higher again earlier today. After several strong bullish 4-hour candle closes, the Ethereum price now trades just below the next price target at $2,800. 

Therefore, we expect Ethereum to break higher by the end of the day. However, since the overall several-day bullish momentum has resulted in a gain of around 30 percent, we can assume that the market is exhausted right now. This should lead to a serious retracement over the next few days.

The first major support area where Ethereum could retrace to is seen at the $2,550-$2,600 price area. If this support area does not hold, Ethereum will find support and set a higher swing low at the $2,400 mark. When considering the overall volatility seen over the past weeks, retracing to the $2,400 support level seems like a more realistic scenario. From there, ETH/USD will likely make its move to reach the so-long awaited $3,000 round number price target.

Ethereum Price Prediction: Conclusion 

Ethereum price prediction is bullish as the market continues pushing higher after retesting the $2,700 level as a support. Therefore, we expect ETH to move above the $2,800 mark later today and continue moving towards the next major price target of $3,000.
