ETH/USD opened at $3,928 after closing near the open yesterday and a brief retest of $3,800 support. Today, Ethereum price moved higher and broke through the $4,000 price target. As of now, some rejection for further downside is seen around $4,200, meaning that we could see a small retracement over the next hours. However, overall the several-week bullish momentum is still strong and we expect further upside over the next 24 hours.

Ethereum continues moving higher with new all-time highs set almost daily. After struggling to set higher highs in the second half of April, Ethereum established a strong base around the $2,100 mark during the last week of April. From there, ETH/USD gained more than 100 percent to the $4,200 mark.

At the end of last week, Ethereum established a consolidation area around $3,800-$4,000, after which another spike higher was set that allowed ETH to finally break the $4,000 mark, and set a new all-time high at $4,200. Since there are still no signs of retracement, we expect Ethereum price action to continue moving higher later this week. 

Alternatively, if the $4,000 support breaks, Ethereum could see a much stronger retracement start to develop as the market has moved at a rapid pace for the past days. Some support might be found around the $3,800 mark as consolidation was previously seen there. However, a much stronger retracement target would be the previous several-day consolidation area around $3,400-$3,600.

Ethereum Price Prediction: Conclusion 

Ethereum price prediction is bullish as the market continues moving higher after breaking above $4,000 and retesting it as a support. Therefore, until a lower low is not set, we expect ETH/USD to continue higher over the next 24 hours.
