ETH/USD: Bullish Breakout Could Start Surge Toward $300
Key Support Levels: $265, $250, $245
Key Resistance Levels: $275, $287, $294
Ethereum had found strong support at a rising trend line, which also acted as the lower boundary of a triangle, earlier in the week. It rebounded aggressively from there over the past couple of days, which allowed ETH to push above the previous ascending triangle pattern that it was trading within.
After breaking higher, ETH continued to surge until it met resistance at $265 (bearish .886 Fib Retracement). It stalled here for a few short hours but eventually penetrated above as it reached the resistance at $274 (1.272 Fib Extension). This decisive breakout now shifts the sentiment towards the bullish favor for ETH as it heads toward the 2020 highs at $287.

ETH-USD Short Term Price Prediction
Looking ahead, if the buyers break the resistance at $274, immediate resistance is located at $287 (2020 high & 1.414 Fib Extension). Above this, resistance lies at $294 and $300.
On the other side, the first level of strong support lies at $265 and $250. Beneath this, support is found at $245, the rising trend line, and $220 (200-days EMA).
The RSI has exploded higher as it reached overbought conditions. This suggests the market may be a little overextended and may need a brief retracement.
