Ethereum

Ethereum rose by 1.82% on Sunday. Following on from a 0.13% gain on Saturday, Ethereum ended the week down by 1.41% to $352.48.

A mixed start to the day saw Ethereum fall to an early morning intraday low $344.08 before making a move.

Steering clear of the first major support level at $342.86, Ethereum rose to a late intraday high $354.35.

Ethereum broke through the first major resistance level at $350.35 to wrap up the day at $352 levels. The second major resistance level at $354.52 had pinned Ethereum back late in the day.

At the time of writing, Ethereum was up by 0.53% to $354.36. A bullish start to the day saw Ethereum rise from an early morning low $352.36 to a high $356.12.

ETH/USD 05/10/20 Hourly Chart

For the day ahead

Ethereum would need to avoid a fall through the $350.30 pivot to support another run at the first major resistance level at $356.53.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break out from the morning high $356.12.

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

Failure to avoid a fall through the $350.30 pivot would bring the first major support level at $346.26 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off, however, Ethereum should avoid sub-$340 levels. The second major support level at $340.03 should limit any downside.
