ETH Price Prediction: Can Price Move Above $3,000?
Technical analysts employ the Elliott Wave theory as a means to identify recurring long-term price patterns and investor psychology, which helps them determine the direction of a trend.
The weekly timeframe count is extremely bullish. The count suggests that ETH is in wave three of a long-term five-wave upward movement (black) that began in June 2022. The sub-wave count is given in white, also showing that ETH is in sub-wave three.
Since wave three is the most likely to extend, the increase can accelerate quickly if the count is correct.
Cryptocurrency trader Bluntz_Capital believes that the short-term count is similarly bullish, accelerating the increase.
In the weekly timeframe, the main resistance area is at $1,950. If ETH breaks out above it, it can increase by 90% to the next resistance at $3,400.ETH/USDT Weekly Chart. Source: TradingView
Despite this bullish ETH price prediction, a decrease below the sub-wave two low of $1,521 will invalidate the count. In that case, the ETH price could fall 30% to the closest support at $1,200.
