The Ethereum price (ETH) rose to a high of $1,439 on January 12. As the Ether price continued to hold above the $1,400 support in the last 24 hours, a slight pullback occurred. At the top of the $1,440 resistance zone, the bullish momentum is encountering rejection.
Long-term analysis of the Ethereum price: bullish
The altcoin has posted a series of higher highs and higher lows since January 4. On the plus side, the market will continue to rise to a high of $1,475 if the Ether price breaks above the current resistance level. The historical highs of $1,600 and $1,678 for Ether are achievable. If there are no obvious price stops, the bullish scenario may become plausible. On the other hand, Ether may fall as the cryptocurrency is trading in the overbought zone of the market. The largest altcoin will decline above the breakout level of $1,352. If the bears break below the $1,300 support, Ethereum will continue to fall until it reaches its old range bound zone.
