ETH/USD 01/10/20 Hourly Chart

For the day ahead

Ethereum would need to avoid a fall through the $357.59 pivot to support a run at the first major resistance level at $363.81.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break out from Wednesday’s high $361.51.

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

Failure to avoid a fall through the $357.59 pivot would bring the first major support level at $353.68 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off, however, Ethereum should steer clear of the second major support level at $347.46.
