Ethereum

Ethereum rose by 0.54% on Monday. Following on from a 0.29% gain on Sunday, Ethereum ended the day at $3,949.45.

A mixed start to the day saw Ethereum fall to an early morning low $3,893.01 before making a move.

Steering clear of the first major support level at $3,775, Ethereum rallied to a late afternoon intraday high and a new swing hi $4,213.85.

Ethereum broke through the first major resistance level at $4,033 and the second major resistance level at $4,137.

Coming up short of $4,300 levels, Ethereum slid to a late intraday low $3,657.35.

Ethereum fell through the first major support level at $3,775 before briefly revisiting $4,070 levels.

The recovery saw Ethereum break back through the first major resistance level at $4,033 before easing back to sub-$4,000 levels.

For the day ahead

Ethereum would need to avoid a fall back through the $3,940 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $4,223 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break out from Monday’s new swing hi $4,213.85.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and resistance at $4,300 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of another breakout, Ethereum could test resistance at $4,500 levels. The second major resistance level sits at $4,497.

Failure to avoid a fall back through the $3,940 pivot would bring the first major support level at $3,667 into play.

Barring an extended sell-off, however, Ethereum should steer clear of sub-$3,500 levels. The second major support level sits at $3,384.
