Ethereum

A bullish start to the day saw Ethereum rise to an early morning intraday high $3,341.47 before hitting reverse.

Falling short of the 23.6% FIB of $3,369 and the first major resistance level at $3,385, Ethereum slid to a late intraday low $3,135.00.

Ethereum fell through the first major support level at $3,175 to end the day at sub-$3,150 levels.

For the day ahead

Ethereum would need to move through $3,208 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $3,280 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break back through to $3,250 levels.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and resistance at $3,300 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of another broad-based crypto rally, Ethereum could test resistance at $3,500. The second major resistance level sits at $3,414. Ethereum would need plenty of support, however, to breakout from the 23.6% FIB of $3,369.

Failure to move through the $3,208 pivot would bring the first major support level at $3,074 into play.
