Ethereum

Ethereum fell by 5.65% on Tuesday. Partially reversing a 16.32% breakout from Monday, Ethereum ended the day at $3,240.01.

It was a particularly bearish start to the day. Ethereum fell from an early morning high $3,454.80 to an early morning intraday low $3,166.12.

Steering clear of the first major support level at $3,105, Ethereum rallied to an early afternoon intraday high and a new swing hi $3,507.98.

Falling short of the first major resistance level at $3,611, Ethereum slid back to sub-$3,200 levels for a 2nd time.

Finding late support, however, Ethereum revisited $3,400 levels before falling back into the deep red.

At the time of writing, Ethereum was up by 3.86% to $3,365.13. A mixed start to the day saw Ethereum fall to an early morning low $3,207.00 before rising to a high $3,382.65.

Ethereum left the major support and resistance levels untested early on.

For the day ahead

Ethereum would need to avoid a fall back through the $3,314 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $3,461 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break through to $3,400 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 $4,000. The second major resistance level sits at $3,682.

Failure to avoid a fall back through the $3,314 pivot would bring the first major support level at $3,093 into play.
