It was a particularly bullish the day. Ethereum rallied from an early morning intraday low $2,952.08 to a final hour intraday high and a new swing hi $3,457.75.

Steering clear of the major support levels, Ethereum broke through the day’s major resistance levels to wrap up the day at $3,400 levels.

For the day ahead

Ethereum would need to avoid a fall through the $3,281 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $3,611 into play.

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

Failure to avoid a back through the $3,281 pivot and the first major support level at $3,105 into play.
