Ethereum

Ethereum fell by 4.37% on Monday. Following a 3.1% gain on Sunday, Ethereum ended the day at $2,592.47.

A bullish start to the day saw Ethereum rise to an early afternoon intraday high $2,849.15 before hitting reverse.

Ethereum broke through the first major resistance level at $2,766 and the second major resistance level at $2,821.

More significantly, Ethereum also broke back through the 38.2% FIB of $2,740 before sliding to a late intraday low $2,575.01.

The reversal saw Ethereum fall through the 38.2% FIB and the first major support level at $2,636 to end the day at sub-$2,600 levels.

At the time of writing, Ethereum was up by 0.44% to $2,603.81. A mixed start to the day saw Ethereum fall to an early low $2,575.00 before rising to a high $2,615.00.

For the day ahead

Ethereum would need to move through the $2,672 pivot and the 38.2% FIB to bring the first major resistance level at $2,769 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break back through to $2,700 levels.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Monday’s high $2,849.15 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of a broad-based crypto rally, Ethereum could test resistance at $3,000. The second major resistance level sits at $2,946.

Failure to move through the $2,672 pivot would bring the first major support level at $2,495 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off, however, Ethereum should steer clear of sub-$2,300 levels. The second major support level at $2,398 should limit the downside.
