Can bullish rally take ETH to $1,700?
The strong bullish defense at the $1,550 support level provided buyers with a good entry point for the recent price rally. Along with the bullish sentiment in the markets, ETH reclaimed $1,619 after a previous rejection at the level on 16 October.
The long-term target for bulls lies at the $1,700 price zone, but buyers will need to clear the $1,680 hurdle in the short term. As of press time, the chart indicators were bullish.
The Relative Strength Index (RSI) highlighted the strong buying pressure with a reading of 61. Likewise, the Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) stayed above the zero mark, which hinted at decent capital inflows. This strengthened the bullish conviction of Spot market demand for ETH.
As such, bulls have a 3% long opportunity from the press time price ($1,634) to the $1,680 price zone. If bulls scale this hurdle successfully, the $1,700 target can be achieved.
On the other hand, a price rejection at $1,680 could see the bullish rally lose momentum, leading to a pullback to the $1,619 support level.
