ETH had briefly dropped below $1,555 on 19 October 2023 and reached a low of $1,541.61 during the trading session. However, bulls stepped in to boost ETH’s price to above the $1,555 level and close the daily candle off at $1,566.57.

Since then, ETH has printed a series of higher lows and higher highs, leading to the formation of an ascending price channel. It was on Monday that the cryptocurrency’s price surged more than 6% and escaped the channel. This also led to ETH breaking above the $1,755 barrier to ultimately flip the level into support.

Yesterday, ETH’s price attempted to overcome the $1,860 barrier but was only able to reach a high of $1,854.38 before traders started taking profit. This resulted in ETH closing yesterday’s trading session at $1,784.98. Despite the correction that the altcoin experienced over the past 24 hours, ETH’s price still had the support of the key $1,755 mark at press time.
