The Ethereum pricesoared to an all-time high as enthusiasm in the cryptocurrencies industry rose. ETH jumped to an all-time high of $2,390, bringing its total market cap to more than $274 billion. It is still the second-biggest cryptocurrency in the world after Bitcoin.
This forecast is on track to happen this week, helped by yesterday’s consumer price index (CPI) data, strong Bitcoin prices, and the performance of DeFi, whose total value locked has surged to more than $55 billion. Also, the upcoming DeFi listing has helped bring digital currencies to the mainstream. So, what next for ETH?
Ethereum price prediction
The four-hour chart shows that the ETH price has been on a strong upward trend and is now about 5% below the resistance at $2,500. The price has even defied the rising wedge pattern shown in black. In technical analysis, the wedge pattern is usually a bearish signal that leads to a bearish breakout. The upward trend is now being supported by the 25-day and 15-day exponential moving averages (EMA).
Therefore, in my view, it is just a matter of time before the Ethereum price hits $2,500. If this happens, we should start focusing on the next target being at $3,000. However, in the immediate near term, we should not rule out a short-term pullback as some bulls start taking profit. The buy the rumour, sell the news comes to play.
