Finding late morning support, Ethereum revisited $2,880 levels before another sell-off late in the day.

Ethereum fell back through the 38.2% FIB and the first major support level before ending the day at $2,745 levels.

For the day ahead

Ethereum would need to move back through the 38.2% FIB of $2,740 and the $2,760 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $2,880 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break back through to $2,800 levels.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and resistance at Thursday’s high $2,893.96 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of a broad-based crypto rally, Ethereum could test resistance at $3,000. The second major resistance level sits at $3,014.

Failure to move through the 38.2% FIB and the $2,760 pivot would bring the first major support level at $2,625 into play.

Barring an extended sell-off, however, Ethereum should steer clear of sub-$2,500 levels. The second major support level at $2,505 should limit the downside.
