More specifically, ETH could not close a daily candle above the resistance at $3600 and ended up rolling over from there to find the support at $3400 on Sunday. It has now established a short-term range between $3600 and $3400 and must break out to dictate the next direction.

ETH-USD Short Term Price Prediction
Looking ahead, the first resistance lies at $3600. This is followed by $3677 (October highs), $3790 (Bearish .786 Fib), and $4000.
On the other side, the first support lies at $3400. This is followed by $3350 (50-day MA), $3287 (.382 Fib & 20-day MA), $3167 (.5 Fib), and $3000.
The daily RSI remains above the midline but is struggling to gain ground further above it. This suggests indecision within the market as it trades inside the established range.
