ETH Price Shoots to $1,750 Before Ethereum Futures ETF Launch

Along with Bitcoin the world’s second-largest cryptocurrency Ethereum (ETH) has also registered solid gains, shooting by more than 3.5% in the last 24 hours and moving closer to $1,750. The recent price surge in ETH happened just a day before the launch of Ethereum Futures ETFs on October 2.

As per the previous reports, the Bitwise Ethereum Futures ETF shall go live later today. The ETH price has surged passed the $1,700 level which is also its 100-hourly Simple Moving Average (SMA). On the upside, Ethereum (ETH) could face strong resistance at $1,750.

Should Ethereum face challenges in surpassing the $1,750 resistance, a potential corrective move to the downside is possible. The initial support on the downside is situated in the vicinity of the $1,710 level. Additionally, the next significant support level rests at $1,680.

Furthermore, the 76.4% Fibonacci retracement level, calculated from the recent rally spanning from the $1,668 swing low to the $1,756 high, is also in proximity to $1,685, serving as additional support. A downside breach below this $1,685 support could trigger a test of the $1,650 support. If this support is breached, it may initiate a new bearish wave. In such a scenario, a decline toward the $1,600 level could become a possibility.

The following significant resistance level is at $1,800. A decisive breach of the $1,800 resistance zone could establish momentum for a more substantial upswing. In this scenario, the price might target the $1,850 resistance. Subsequently, the next notable resistance could be found at $1,920. Further advances could potentially pave the way for an upward move toward the $2,000 mark.
