ETH/USD jumped above $176.00 during early Asian hours as the bullish momentum increased after the coin broke above the psychological $150.00.

ETH/USD: Technical picture

ETH/USD has developed a steep upside trend with the local support created by the psychological $170.00. If it is cleared, the middle line of 1-hour Bollinger Band at $167.00 will come into focus. This area is likely to slow down the downside correction; otherwise, a sustainable move lower will open up the way towards SMA50 1-hour at $155.00 and the above-mentioned critical barrier of $150.00. 

The intraday RSI reversed to the downside, ready to exit the overbought territory. It means that the price may extend the retreat from the recent highs; however, the trend remains bullish as long as it stays above $150.00.
