A mixed start to the day saw Ethereum rise to an early morning intraday high $3,590.00 before hitting reverse.

Falling short of the first major resistance level at $3,861, Ethereum slid to a late afternoon intraday low $3,108.00.

The sell-off saw Ethereum fall through the 23.6% FIB of $3,369 and the first major support level at $3,327.

Finding late morning support, Ethereum briefly revisited $3,400 levels before falling back to sub-$3,300 levels.

At the time of writing, Ethereum was down by 0.84% to $3,255.74. A mixed start to the day saw Ethereum rise to an early morning high $3,304.18 before falling to a low $3,241.06.

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

For the day ahead

Ethereum would need to move through the $3,327 pivot and the 23.6% FIB of $3,369 to bring the first major resistance level at $3,546 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 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of a breakout, Ethereum could test the second major resistance level at $3,809.

Failure to move through the $3,327 pivot and the 23.6% FIB of $3,369 would bring the first major support level at $3,064 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off, however, Ethereum should steer clear of the second major support level at $2,845.

Looking at the Technical Indicators

First Major Support Level: $3,064

Pivot Level: $3,327

First Major Resistance Level: $3,546

23.6% FIB Retracement Level: $3,369

38.2% FIB Retracement Level: $2,740

62% FIB Retracement Level: $1,725
