It’s back into the red early, with the pair needing to move through key levels to avoid heavier losses on the day.

Ethereum

Ethereum fell by 3.36% on Wednesday. Following on from a 3.36% fall on Tuesday, Ethereum ended the day at $174.5.

Bearish through the day, Ethereum fell from an early morning intraday high $181.2 to a late afternoon intraday low $171.7.

Falling short of the major resistance levels, Ethereum fell through the first major support level at $175.18.

Finding support late in the day, Ethereum broke back through the first major support level before a late pullback to sub-$175 levels.

The extended bearish trend, formed at late April 2018’s swing hi $828.97, remained firmly intact. A reversal from June’s current year high $364.49 back through the 23.6% FIB of $257 reaffirmed the extended bearish trend.

At the time of writing, Ethereum was down by 0.53% to $173.58. A bearish start to the day saw Ethereum fall from an early morning high $174.62 to a low $172.79

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

For the day ahead

Ethereum would need to move through to $175.80 levels to support a run at the first major resistance level at $179.9.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break out from $176 levels.

Barring a broad-based crypto rebound, Ethereum would likely fall well short of $180 levels and Wednesday’s high $181.2.

Failure to move through to $175.80 levels could see Ethereum take a bigger hit on the day.

A fall through the morning low $172.79 would bring the first major support level at $170.4 into play before any recovery.

Barring an extended sell-off through the day, Ethereum should steer clear of sub-$170 support levels.
