For the day ahead

Ethereum would need to avoid a fall back through the 23.6% FIB of $3,369 and the $3,365 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $3,461 play.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break out from Monday’s high $3,438.91.

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

In the event of a broad-based crypto rally, Ethereum could test resistance at $3,600 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $3,535.

A fall back through the 23.6% FIB of $3,369 and the $3,365 pivot would bring the first major support level at $3,292 into play.
