- After rising 6% on the day, Ethereum was trading at $1,900 with a bullish bias.
- The 200 SMA and the IOMAP model indicated that Ether’s upward potential was limited to $2,070.
- If the $1,800 threshold is breached, ETH might fall to $1,600.
After stabilising near $1,800 since June 2, Ethereum’s native token ETH began a bullish surge. This rash action has sent the smart-contracts token back beyond $1,900, following a 6% gain in the previous 24 hours. Technical and on-chain data, on the other hand, suggested that the bull’s short-term aim might be set just above $2,000.
On the four-hour chart, ether was trading at $1,900 within a descending parallel channel (below). The 100 four-hour Simple Moving Average (SMA) at $1,880 and the 50 SMA at $1,846 provided instant support for ETH at this level.
Ethereum’s limited upside was also reinforced by IntoTheBlock’s In/Out of the Money Around Price (IOMAP) model, which revealed that the area around $2,079, where the 200 SMA lay, was where the near-term upside was limited. 1.46 million ETH were previously purchased at this price by around 892,500 addresses, who could withstand any attempts to drive the price higher.
In a bearish scenario, the largest altcoin may fall to seek refuge around the bottom limit of the chart pattern at $1,653 or the psychological level of $1,600.
