Ethereum

Ethereum fell by 0.25% on Thursday. Following a 4.22% slide on Wednesday, Ethereum ended the day at $387.60.

It was a mixed start to the day. Ethereum rose to an early morning high $392.51 before hitting reverse.

Falling short of the first major resistance level at $405.27, Ethereum fell to a mid-day intraday low $380.75.

Steering clear of the first major support level at $376.25, Ethereum rose to a late afternoon intraday high $394.00.

Falling well short of the first major resistance level at $405.27, Ethereum fell back to sub-$388 levels and into the red.

At the time of writing, Ethereum was down by 0.31% to $386.39. A mixed start to the day saw Ethereum rise to an early morning high $387.67 before falling to a low $386.39.

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

For the day ahead

Ethereum would need to move through the $387.45 pivot to support a run at the first major resistance level at $394.15.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break back through to $390 levels.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Thursday’s high $394.00 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of a breakout, Ethereum could test resistance at $400 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $400.70.

Failure to move through the $387.45 pivot would bring the first major support level at $380.90 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off, however, Ethereum should steer clear of sub-$370 levels. The second major support level at $374.20 should limit the downside.

Finding support at the first major support level at $53.40 Litecoin briefly revisited $56 levels before sliding back into the red.

At the time of writing, Litecoin was down by 0.51% to $54.69. A bearish start to the day saw Litecoin fall from an early morning $54.94 to a low $54.69.
