Ethereum price advance still not commanding heavy buying

Sometimes rallies take time to attract heavy buying, but it bears watching as the rally continues to unfold. The lack of interest will hurt the odds of ETH breaking through significant tactical levels in the days and weeks ahead.

As mentioned above, ETH should close today above the 161.8% extension of the 2018 bear market at $2,248, and it also came close to hitting the 138.2% extension of the February correction at $2,327 on an intra-day basis. The following important target for the advance is the alignment of the 161.8% extension of the February correction at $2,504 and the symmetrical triangle’s measured move target of $2,507.

If heavy buying emerges, speculators should consider the 261.8% extension level of the February correction at $3,253 as a possible price outcome in the coming weeks.
