Although ETH/USD spent the first part of the week trading sideways, the bulls have since gained a surge of power to move upwards. At present, ETH/USD is trading well above its 10-day and 50-day Simple Moving Averages (SMA) and stands at $1,924.96. Trading volume spiked mid-yesterday but has since reduced.

Analyst Anil Panchal from FX Street believes that a key resistance rests at $1,975.

Meanwhile, key support levels lie at $1,830, $1,770, and the monthly low of $1,490.
