A mixed start to the day saw Ethereum rise to an early morning intraday high $3,595.00 before hitting reverse.

Ethereum fell through the first major support level at $3,476 and the second major support level at $3,383.

The extended sell-off also saw Ethereum fall through the 23.6% FIB of $3,369 before a move back through to $3,400 levels.

For the day ahead

Ethereum would need to move through the $3,448 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $3,547 into play.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Friday’s high $3,595.00 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 $3,693.

Failure to move through the $3,448 pivot would bring the 23.6% FIB of $3,369 and the first major support level at $3,302 into play.

Barring an extended sell-off, however, Ethereum should steer clear of sub-$3,200 levels. The second major support level at $3,203 should limit the downside.
