For the day ahead
Ethereum would need to avoid the $4,662 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $4,815 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break back through to $4,800 levels.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Wednesday’s ATH $4,867.81 would likely cap the upside.
In the event of a broad-based crypto rally, Ethereum could test resistance at $5,000 levels before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $4,963.
A fall through the $4,662 pivot would bring the first major support level at $4,514 into play.
Barring another extended sell-off, however, Ethereum should steer clear of sub-$4,400 levels. The second major support level sits at $4,361.
