Ether's price is above the moving averages

Ethereum (ETH) price has fallen to $3,500 support and resumed consolidation above it. Ether is unstable as the price fluctuates above the current support. As the market fluctuates, there is a tendency for the price to break the current support.

If the largest altcoin loses the current support, the market will fall to the lows of either $3,440 or $3,365. Currently, Ether's price is above the moving averages, indicating a possible upside move. If the current support at $3,500 holds, it would signal the resumption of the uptrend. First, buyers will try to break through resistance at $3,700. If this resistance is broken, the Ether price will rise and regain the previous high of $4,000. In the meantime, the altcoin is moving in a range between $3,500 and $3,700.
