Technical outlook

The Relative Strength Index (RSI) indicator on the daily chart is approaching 70, suggesting that Ethereum could struggle to preserve its bullish momentum and stage a technical correction in the near-term.

Nevertheless, ETH/USD is likely to remain bullish as long as it closes the week above $227 (April 30 high). Above that level, a static resistance aligns at $245 ahead of $250-$252 area (psychological level/March 7 high). On the other hand, $220 (daily low) could be seen as the first technical support before $206 (20-day SMA) and $200 (psychological level).
