Ethereum

Ethereum rallied by 8.63% on Wednesday. Reversing a 3.83% loss from Tuesday, Ethereum ended the day at $2,724.71.

More significantly, Ethereum also broke through the 38.2% FIB of $2,740 before a pullback to sub-$2,710 levels.

For the day ahead

Ethereum would need to avoid the $2,651 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $2,845 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break out from the 38.2% FIB of $2,740.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely cap any upside.

In the event of another broad-based crypto rally, Ethereum could test resistance at $3,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $2,966.

A fall through the $2,651 pivot would bring the first major support level at $2,530 into play.

Barring an extended sell-off, however, Ethereum should steer clear of sub-$2,500 levels. The second major support level sits at $2,335.
