Ethereum (ETH/USD) extended recent gains early in today’s North American session as the pair appreciated to the 1819 area after trading as low as the 1707.09 area during the Asian session, with the intraday low representing a test of the 38.2% retracement of the appreciating range from 1493.28 to 1839. Buying pressure also emerged around the 1759.50 area, the 50% retracement of the recent depreciating range from 1839 to 1680. Stops were elected above the 1804.97 area during the ascent, representing the 78.6% retracement of the same depreciating range. Many traders are now focused on the psychologically-important 2000 level following the ongoing move higher that has recently seen Stops elected above upside price objectives including the 1711.20, 1716.45, 1733.12, 1750.63, and 1805.21 levels. Some of those upside price objectives were technically significant on account of buying pressure that originated around the 148.08, 310.79, 439.77, and 123.72 areas. If ETH/USD is able to extend its upward gains, additional upside price objectives include the 1930.40, 1957.36, 2017.05, and 2080.48 levels.

If ETH/USD reverses recent gains and the psychologically-important 1000 figure cannot be held, technical traders will eye additional downside retracement areas including the 976.37, 954.16, 941.22, 917.03, 915.48, 902.24, and 895.33 levels.
