Ethereum

Ethereum rose by 2.20% on Tuesday. Following a 26.25% rally from Monday, Ethereum ended the day at $2,707.56.

A bullish start to the day saw Ethereum rise to an early morning intraday high $2,768.00 before hitting reverse.

While falling short of the first major resistance level at $2,862, Ethereum briefly broke through the 38.2% FIB of S2,740.

The reversal saw Ethereum fall back through the 38.2% FIB to a mid-day intraday low $2,383.39.

Steering clear of the first major support level at $2,256, Ethereum bounced back to end the day at $2,700 levels.

The 38.2% FIB of $2,740 pinned Ethereum back late in the day.

At the time of writing, Ethereum was up by 0.44% to $2,719.60. A bullish start to the day saw Ethereum rise from an early morning low $2,707.72 to a high $2,720.00.

For the day ahead

Ethereum would need to avoid the $2,620 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $2,856 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 a broad-based crypto rally, Ethereum could test resistance at the 23.6% FIB of $3,369. The second major resistance level sits at $3,004.

Failure to avoid the $2,620 pivot would bring the first major support level at $2,471 into play.

Barring an extended sell-off, however, Ethereum should steer clear of sub-$2,300 levels. The second major support level sits at $2,235.

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.
