In a recent development, Vitalik echoed concern about pushing Ethereum on a multi-purpose path. Although the price didn’t react to his concerns, here is the state of ETH’s short-term prospects.

The rally eased at the short-term range high

Since 8 May, ETH has been oscillating between $1740 – $1873. At press time, it retested the range of $1873 but left behind an FVG (fair value gap) of $1825 – $1846 (white). 

The FVG could hold further drop, giving bulls a chance to retest or smash the range high. A bullish breakout could set ETH to reclaim the $1900 and $2000 psychological levels. 

However, a drop below the FVG zone could ease at the mid-range of $1807. A session close below the mid-range could tip sellers to drag ETH to $1784 or range low of $1740. 

Meanwhile, the RSI value was 67, highlighting an increased buying pressure in the past few hours. Similarly, the OBV increased confirming improved ETH volume and demand. 

Longs discouraged

As per Coinglass, longs suffered more liquidations at press time, with about $300k worth of positions wrecked. The trend could undermine a strong retest of the range high as the data paints a bearish outlook in the futures market. 

Similarly, ETH long/short ratio showed sellers had a little upper hand at press time, commanding a dominance at 52.98% on the 4-hour timeframe. 

As such, more upside moves could delay for a while before ETH attempts to break above the range high. BTC’s movement could offer more clarity on the direction.
