On Wednesday, Ethereum recovered from its previous loss as it bounced off a crucial support area, likely propelling ETH up to a swing high.
The world’s second-largest cryptocurrency boosted 3.75% or $4,272.03 with a 24-hour change of $154.56.
At the same time, it now stands with a market capitalization of $501.99 billion. It also holds a 24-hour volume of $1.18 billion with $4,063.75 high and $4,388.37 high.
In early trading, Ethereum kept a strong movement at the $4,050.00 support level, outperforming Bitcoin.
Consequently, the virtual coin formed a base and initiated a steady recovery wave beyond the $4,120.00 resistance.
Then, there was a clear break on top of the $4,200.00 resistance zone and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
Also, a break formed above a major bearish trend line with resistance close to the $4,205.00 on the hourly chart.
Subsequently, the ETH edged above the $4,300.00 resistance and formed a high beside the $4,386.00. As of writing, Ethereum corrected gains under the $4,300.00 level.
Eventually, a break formed below the 23.60% Fibonacci retracement level of the upward move from $4,026.00 low to $4,386.00 high.
Moreover, Ethereum traded beyond the $4,200.00 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The initial resistance on the upside sat near the $4,300.00.
Correspondingly, the first major resistance is close to the $4,350.00 level. An upturn near the $4,300.00 and $4,350.00 levels could initiate another fresh increase.
In line with this, Ethereum might soar above the $4,450.00 level and move towards the $4,500.00 barrier.
