Ethereum

Ethereum fell by 1.22% on Friday. Partially reversing a 1.79% gain from Thursday, Ethereum ended the day at $2,370.05.

A mixed start to the day saw Ethereum rise to an early morning intraday high $2,442.29 before hitting reverse.

Falling short of the first major resistance level at $2,596, Ethereum tumbled to an early morning intraday low $2,060.00.

The sell-off saw Ethereum fall through the first major support level at $2,254 and the second major support level at $2,108.

Steering clear of the 23.6% FIB of $2,041, Ethereum broke back through the major support levels to end the day at $2,300 levels.

At the time of writing, Ethereum was down by 1.22% to $2,341.07. A mixed start to the day saw Ethereum rise to an early morning high $2,371.18 before falling to a low $2,337.23.

For the day ahead

Ethereum would need to avoid the pivot level at $2,291 to support a run at the first major resistance level at $2,522.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break out from Friday’s high $2,442.29.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and resistance at $2,600 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of a breakout, Ethereum could test resistance at Thursday’s new swing hi $2,646.2. The second major resistance level sits at $2,673.

Failure to avoid a fall through the $2,291 pivot would bring the first major support level at $2,139 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off, however, Ethereum should steer clear of the second major support level at $1,909. The 23.6% FIB of $2,041 should limit the downside.
