On the daily chart, the smart contracts giant is battling immediate resistance presented by the $3,400 psychological level. Note that a daily closure above this level could bolster Ethereum price bulls towards the May ATH above the $4,000 psychological level.

However, the ETH will have to overcome the $3,500 psychological level,  resistance at $3,550, and the $3,920 major resistance before making a go at $4,000.

Crypto signals from the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) indicate ETH is generally bullish. The position of the MACD above the zero line in the positive region validates the bullish narrative. Moreover, the movement of the 12-day exponential moving average (EMA) above the 26-day EMA indicates that the bulls are in the driving seat.

However, the In/Out of the Money Around Price (IOMAP) model by IntoTheBlock shows that ETH faces massive resistance at the $3,400 psychological level. This area lies within the $3,344 and $3,442 investor cluster where approximately 387,000 ETH were previously bought by roughly 360,000 addresses. This area could prove difficult for ETH bulls who wish to Re-try Ethereum’s ATH around $4,196.

ETH Could Reach These Levels

Note that if Ethereum price fails to close the day above the $3,300, it could take a breather and retract to test the immediate support at the $3,200 psychological level before the bulls re-group to take Ethereum price higher again.

Any further drop would see the Ethereum price retreat towards the 100-day SMA at $2,550 and 50-day SMA at $2,360 respectively.

A drop beyond this could see ETH test the 200-day SMA support area at $2,260 or slide further down towards the July 20 low at $1,716 before recovery begins.
