Ethereum rallied by 3.38% on Wednesday. Reversing a 1.46% decline from Tuesday, Ethereum ended the day at $3,608.21.
A mixed start to the day saw Ethereum slide to an early afternoon intraday low $3,412.45 before making a move.
Finding support at the first major support level at $3,413, Ethereum rallied to a late intraday high $3,614.48.
Ethereum broke through the first major resistance level at $3,559.
Coming within range of the second major resistance level at $3,627, however, Ethereum briefly slipped back sub-$3,600 levels.
At the time of writing, Ethereum was up by 0.29% to $3,618.52. A bullish start to the day saw Ethereum rise from an early morning low $3,608.26 to a high $3,624.88.
Ethereum left the major support and resistance levels untested early on.
Ethereum would need to avoid the $3,545 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $3,678 play.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break out from $3,650 levels.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely cap the upside.
In the event of a broad-based crypto rally, Ethereum could test resistance at $3,800 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $3,747.
A fall through the $3,545 pivot would bring the first major support level at $3,476 into play.
Barring an extended sell-off, however, Ethereum should steer clear of sub-$3,300 levels. The 23.6% FIB of $3,369 and the second major support level at $3,343 should limit the downside.
