A close above USD 2,400 could set the pace for a move towards the USD 2,500 level. In either case, ETH erased all its daily losses but is still down 17% in a week.
On the downside, an immediate support is near the USD 2,300 level. The next major support is near the USD 2,250 level, below which the price might retest USD 2,200.
