Ethereum

Ethereum slid by 8.78% on Thursday. Reversing a 3.01% gain from Wednesday, Ethereum ended the day at $1,482.62.

A mixed start to the day saw Ethereum rise to an early morning high $1,659.97 before hitting reverse.

Falling well short of the major resistance levels, Ethereum fell to a late morning low $1,579.70.

Finding support at the 23.6% FIB of $1,579, Ethereum struck a late intraday high $1,672.49 before a 2nd sell-off.

Falling short of the first major resistance level at $1,726, Ethereum slid to a late intraday low $1,458.50.

Ethereum fell through the 23.6% FIB and the first major support level at $1,512 to end the day at sub-$1,500 levels.

At the time of writing, Ethereum was up by 0.75% to $1,493.80. A mixed start to the day saw Ethereum fall to an early morning low $1,464.68 before rising to a high $1,493.80

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

For the day ahead

Ethereum would need to move through the pivot level at $1,538 to support a run at the first major resistance level at $1,617.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break out from the 23.6% FIB of $1,579.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Thursday’s high $1,672.49 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of a breakout, Ethereum could test resistance at $1,800 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $1,752.

Failure to move through the $1,538 pivot would bring the first major support level at $1,403 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off, however, Ethereum should steer clear of the second major support level at $1,324.
