Ethereum

Ethereum rose by 0.46% on Sunday. Partially reversing a 1.04% decline on Saturday, Ethereum ended the week up by 12.66% to $3,847.18.

A bullish start to the day saw Ethereum rise to a mid-morning intraday high $3,919.00 before hitting reverse.

Falling short of the first major resistance level at $3,931, Ethereum slid to a late intraday low $3,643.00.

Ethereum fell through the first major support level at $3,765 and the second major support level at $3,700.

Finding late support, however, Ethereum broke back through the major support levels to end the day at $3,800 levels.

At the time of writing, Ethereum was up by 0.11% to $3,851.37. A mixed start to the day saw Ethereum rise to an early morning high $3,864.0 before falling to a low $3,845.0.

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

For the day ahead

Ethereum would need to avoid the $3,803 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $3,963 play.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break out from Saturday’s high $3,919.00.

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 the second major resistance level at $4,079.

A fall through the $3,803 pivot would bring the first major support level at $3,687 into play.

Barring an extended sell-off, however, Ethereum should steer clear of sub-$3,500 levels. The second major support level at $3,527 should limit the downside.
