For the day ahead

Ethereum would need to move through the $2,425 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $2,498 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break out from $2,450 levels.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Wednesday’s high $2,555.00 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of another broad-based crypto rally, Ethereum could test the second major resistance level at $2,629.

Failure to move through the $2,425 pivot would bring the first major support level at $2,294 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off, however, Ethereum should steer clear of sub-$2,200 levels. The second major support level at $2,221 should limit the downside.
