Ethereum price is hovering around the support level at $4,600 after pulling back from the all-time high of $4,670.63 it hit on Wednesday. Based on the altcoin’s reaction to the Fed’s statement on Wednesday, the decision start tapering monthly asset purchases from November was already priced in.
Notably, the Fed maintained its narrative that high inflation will prove transitory. As such, it may not need to hastily hike rates. Subsequently, a risk-on sentiment will likely boost the cryptocurrency above the crucial support level of $4,400.

At the time of writing, Ethereum price was down by 0.01% at 4,594.33. On a two-hour chart, it is trading above the 25 and 50-day exponential moving averages. Based on these technical indicators, it will likely record further gains in the short term.

To sustain the current momentum, the bulls need to defend the support at the crucial level of 4,400. On the upside, a move above the resistance level at the new record-high of 4,670.63 will place the next target at 4,800.
