Ethereum

Ethereum slid by 4.73% on Friday. Following a 1.30% loss on Thursday, Ethereum ended the day at $3,400.00.

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

Falling short of the first major resistance level at $3,669, Ethereum slid to a late intraday low $3,350.06.

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.

At the time of writing, Ethereum was down by 0.42% to $3,375.78. A mixed start to the day saw Ethereum rise to an early morning high $3,403.64 before falling to a low $3,371.00.

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

 

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.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break back through to $3,500 levels.

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.

Pivot Level: $3,448

First Major Resistance Level: $3,547

23.6% FIB Retracement Level: $3,369

In the event of another breakout, Litecoin could test resistance at $200. The second major resistance level sits at $196.

Failure to move through the $183 pivot would bring the 23.6% FIB and the first major support level at $175 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off, Litecoin should steer clear of sub-$170. The second major support level at $170 should limit the downside.
