At the time of writing, ETH/USD is teetering at $233 as the bulls’ nurture an uptrend targeting $240.
In the near term, the technical picture shows that Ethereum could first entertain consolidation above $230 before a significant recovery comes into action. The consolidation is confirmed by the RSI and the MACD.
