Ethereum

Ethereum fell by 0.63% on Wednesday. Following on from a 1.40% decline on Tuesday, Ethereum ended the day at $378.97.

It was another mixed start to the day. Ethereum rose to an early morning high $385.5 before falling to a late morning low $378.01.

Steering clear of the major support and resistance levels, Ethereum rose to an early afternoon intraday high $387.63.

Falling short of the first major resistance level at $388.07, Ethereum fell to a late afternoon intraday low $373.29.

Ethereum fell through the first major support level at $374.48 before a partial recovery to end the day at $378 levels.

ETH/USD 15/10/20 Hourly Chart

For the day ahead

Ethereum would need to move through the $379.96 pivot to support a run at the first major resistance level at $386.64

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break back through to $385 levels.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Wednesday’s high $387.63 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of a breakout, Ethereum could test the second major resistance level at $394.3. Resistance at $400 would likely pin Ethereum back, however.

Failure to move through the $379.96 pivot would bring the first major support level at $372.30 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off, however, Ethereum should avoid the 38.2% FIB and the second major support level at $365.62.
