Ethereum

Ethereum surged by 26.25% on Monday. Reversing an 8.58% slide from the previous day, Ethereum ended the day at $2,651.24.

A mixed start to the day saw Ethereum fall to an early morning intraday low $2,072.15 before making a move.

Steering clear of the first major support level at $1,756, Ethereum rallied to a late intraday high $2,678.25.

Ethereum broke through the first major resistance level at $2,412 to wrap up the day at $2,650 levels.

At the time of writing, Ethereum was up by 2.67% to $2,722.12. A mixed start to the day saw Ethereum fall to an early morning low $2,627.41 before rising to a high $2,749.98.

For the day ahead

Ethereum would need to avoid the $2,467 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $2,862 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 and resistance at $3,000 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of another broad-based crypto rally, Ethereum could test resistance at the 23.6% FIB of $3,369. The second major resistance level sits at $3,073.

Failure to avoid the $2,467 pivot would bring the first major support level at $2,256 into play.

Barring an extended sell-off, however, Ethereum should steer clear of the second major support level at $1,861.

A sustained fall through the 62% FIB of $1,725 would form a near-term bearish trend from 12th May’s swing hi $4,384.30.
