For the day ahead

Ethereum would need to avoid the pivot level at $2,744 to support a run at the first major resistance level at $2,815.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break out from Thursday’s new swing hi $2,800.00.

In the event of a breakout, Ethereum could test resistance at $3,000. The second major resistance level sits at $2,872.
