A mixed start to the day saw Ethereum rise to an early morning intraday high $2,762.91 before hitting reverse.

Falling short of the first major resistance level at $2,880, Ethereum slid to a late intraday low $2,329.2.

Ethereum fell through the 38.2% FIB of $2,740 and the first major support level at $2,720.

The extended sell-off also saw Ethereum fall through the second major support level at $2,505 to end the day at $2,400 levels.

At the time of writing, Ethereum was down by 0.25% to $2,407.84. A mixed start to the day saw Ethereum fall to an early morning low $2,396.20 before rising to a high $2,434.53.

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

For the day ahead

Ethereum would need to move through the $2,502 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $2,675 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break out from $2,500 levels.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and resistance at the 38.2% FIB of $2,740 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of a broad-based crypto rebound, Ethereum could test resistance at $3,000. The second major resistance level sits at $2,936.

Failure to move through the $2,502 pivot would bring the first major support level at $2,241 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off, however, Ethereum should steer clear of sub-$2,000 levels. The second major support level at $2,068 should limit the downside.

Looking at the Technical Indicators

First Major Support Level: $2,241

Pivot Level: $2,502

First Major Resistance Level: $2,675

23.6% FIB Retracement Level: $3,369

For the day ahead

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

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Friday’s high $198.92 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 $214.

Failure to move through the $181 pivot would bring the 62% FIB of $174 and the first major support level at $162 into play.

Barring an extended sell-off, however, Litecoin should steer clear of sub-$160. The second major support level sits at $147.

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

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ripple’s XRP to break back through to $0.95 levels.
