Falling short of the first major resistance level at $356.53, Ethereum slid to a mid-morning intraday low $348.69.

Steering clear of the first major support level at $346.26, Ethereum recovered to an afternoon high $354.41.

ETH/USD 06/10/20 Hourly Chart

For the day ahead

Ethereum would need to avoid a fall through the $352.85 pivot to support another run at the first major resistance level at $357.00.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break out from Monday’s 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 $352.85 pivot would bring the first major support level at $349.57 into play.

Barring an extended sell-off, however, Ethereum should avoid sub-$345 levels. The second major support level at $345.42 should limit any downside.
