A mixed start to the day saw Ethereum rise to an early morning intraday high $2,859.89 before hitting reverse.

Falling short of the first major resistance level at $2,944, Ethereum slid to a mid-day intraday low $2,555.01.

Ethereum fell through the first major support level at $2,717 and the second major support level at $2,576.

More significantly, Ethereum also fell through the 38.2% FIB of $2,740 before finding support.

Through the afternoon, Ethereum revisited $2,741 levels before easing back. The 38.2% FIB pinned Ethereum back late in the day.

At the time of writing, Ethereum was up by 1.05% to $2,719.05. A mixed start to the day saw Ethereum fall to an early morning low $2,674.76 before rising to a high $2,726.39.

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

For the day ahead

Ethereum would need to avoid a fall back through the $2,702 pivot to bring 38.2% FIB and the first major resistance level at $2,849 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break back through to $2,800 levels.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Friday’s high $2,859.89 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of a broad-based crypto rally, Ethereum could test resistance at $3,100. The second major resistance level sits at $3,007.

A fall back through the $2,702 pivot would bring the first major support level at $2,544 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off, however, Ethereum should steer clear of the second major support level at $2,397.

Pivot Level: $2,702

First Major Resistance Level: $2,849

For the day ahead

Litecoin would need to avoid a fall back through the $181 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $192 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Litecoin to break back through to $190 levels.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Friday’s high $193.80 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of an extended breakout, Litecoin could test resistance at $210. The second major resistance level sits at $205.

A fall back through the $181 pivot would bring the 38.2% FIB of $174 and the first major support level at $167 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off, however, Litecoin should steer clear of sub-$160 levels. The second major support level sits at $156.

A sustained fall through the 62% FIB of $174 would form a near-term bearish trend from 10th May’s swing hi $413.91.
