Let’s see some macro factors. FED increases interest rates by 25bps as expected, which helps the whole market up in the short term. However, we shall not be too excited as it also forecasts 6 more hikes in 2022.
Based on the daily chart, Ethereum(ETHUSD)’s price is close to the trend line forming with recent highs near $3200 and $3000. There is resistance near $2800 and if we cannot break the trend line, the first support area is around $2550 and the second support area is around $2400. If the price breaks the trend line and the resistance area to the upside, our first target is $2850, the second target is $3000 and the third is $3200.
