ETH is currently trading around the support at $1,629.73. If the altcoin can close today’s trading session above this level, it is likely that ETH could make an upward move. The fact that ETH’s 20-EMA is still positioned bullishly above the 50-EMA means that there could be enough bullish momentum to push the ETH price a bit higher again.
