For the day ahead

Ethereum would need to avoid a fall through the $3,880 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $4,033 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break through to $4,000 levels.

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

In the event of another breakout, Ethereum could test resistance at $4,200 levels. The second major resistance level sits at $4,137.

Failure to avoid a fall through the $3,880 pivot would bring the first major support level at $3,775 into play.
