The daily Relative Strength Index (RSI) supports the ongoing upward movement.

RSI is a momentum indicator used by traders to assess whether a market is in an overbought or oversold condition, aiding in their decision to buy or sell an asset.

When RSI readings are above 50 and the trend is upward, it suggests that bulls maintain an advantage, whereas readings below 50 imply the opposite.

Currently, the RSI is rising and sits above 50, both considered indications of a bullish trend. Although the indicator is in overbought territory, there are no signs of a bearish divergence that might trigger a decline.

Get ready for altseason when $ETH breaks above $2,000. Then it’s time to keep refreshing your portfolio tracker continuously. Only a 5% price increase away now.

ETH Price Prediction: How Long Will Increase Continue?

Utilizing the Elliott Wave theory, technical analysts examine long-term price patterns and investor psychology that recur to determine the direction of a trend.

The weekly analysis presents an overwhelmingly positive outlook, aligning with the Ethereum price breakout from the 200-day resistance trendline.

It indicates that ETH is currently in the third wave of a long-term five-wave upward cycle (black) that commenced back in June 2022.

The sub-wave progression is detailed in white, suggesting that ETH is within the third sub-wave.

Given that the third wave is typically the one most likely to extend significantly, there is potential for a rapid acceleration in the price if this analysis proves accurate.

On the weekly timeframe, the primary hurdle lies at $1,950. Should ETH surpass this level, it could potentially surge by 84% to reach the subsequent resistance point at $3,400.

It’s important to note that this bullish ETH price forecast has a caveat. If the price drops below the low of sub-wave two, which is at $1,521, it will negate the current analysis.

In such a scenario, the price of ETH might experience a 36% decline, potentially finding support at the nearest level of $1,200.
