Ethereum (ETH) has been closely tracking Bitcoin’s price action over the past several days and weeks and was able to incur some bullish momentum this past Tuesday separate from Bitcoin, although this movement was short-lived and was closely followed by a retrace back towards its current price levels.
Analysts are now nothing that Ethereum may currently be positioned for a noteworthy bullish movement in the near-term, as it is currently trading just above a region with massive support.
Ethereum Finds Strong Support at $180
At the time of writing, Ethereum is trading up marginally at its current price of $183.85, which marks a slight climb from its recent lows of $180 that were set overnight.
In the time following this rally, the cryptocurrency has found strong resistance around the lower-$190 region, which may signal that the crypto is currently caught within a relatively tight trading range between $180 and $190.
The formation of this tight trading range has come about amidst declining on-chain volume, which has dropped 11% over the past 24-hours, according to data from TokenAnalyst.

ETH May Be Positioned for Further Gains in Near-Term
Mayne, a popular cryptocurrency analyst on Twitter, spoke about this in a recent tweet, explaining that he is currently bullish on ETH based on its weekly chart while pointing to the significant support that lies directly below its current price.
“$BTC probably isn’t going to $16k today. But, looking at the weekly charts for it and $ETH I can’t help but be bullish. Still, a lot of salty bears under my posts. I’m going to redeem ICT’s name by catching the bottoms on both with order blocks,” he said while referencing the charts seen below.
