The Ethereum price has moved in the same direction as the broader market. In the last 24 hours, Ethereum has moved up by 2.5%. On the weekly timeframe, the altcoin has rarely registered any movement. This reflects lateral trading for ETH.
In the short term, the altcoin might be registering gains, but as the technicals indicate, the coin can depreciate again before it rallies. Accumulation has been considerably low on the chart. Buying activity must significantly increase if ETH is to break above the $1,300 price mark.
Even though ETH remained comfortably above the $1,220 price, buying strength has been weak on the daily chart. Ethereum has to keep trading above the $1,240 and $1,250 price levels for the coin to take a shot at $1,300. The bulls will lose all strength if the Ethereum price moves below the $1,240 mark and closes near $1,230. This price pullback can then further fuel a rally to $1,300.

ETH was trading at $1,275 at the time of writing. The coin is presently consolidating after flipping the $1,240 level as support. Immediate resistance for Ethereum stood at $1,290; the coin is expected to encounter a setback at that level.
However, ETH must stay above $1,250 to avoid a significant loss of value. The bulls must keep defending the $1,250 level regarding the closest support line. The amount of Ethereum traded in the last session declined slightly, indicating a fall in the number of buyers in the market.
