Ethereum rose by 0.29% on Tuesday. Following on from a 5.92% rally on Monday, Ethereum ended the day at $180.82.
A bullish start to the day saw Ethereum rally to an early morning intraday high $185.3 before hitting reverse.
Ethereum came up against the first major resistance level at $185.64 before sliding to a late intraday low $177.42.
Steering well clear of the first major support level at $171.75, Ethereum recovered to $180 levels to end the day in the green.
The extended bearish trend, formed at late April 2018’s swing hi $828.97, remained firmly intact. A reversal from June’s current year high $364.49 back through the 23.6% FIB of $257 reaffirmed the extended bearish trend.
At the time of writing, Ethereum was up by 0.24% to $181.15. A bullish start to the day saw Ethereum rise from an early morning low $180.73 to a high $182.54.
Ethereum left the major support and resistance levels untested early on.
For the day ahead
Ethereum would need to hold onto $181 levels to support another run at the first major resistance level at $184.94.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break through to $183 levels.
Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Tuesday’s high $185.3 should cap any upside.
Failure to hold onto $181 levels could see Ethereum hit reverse. A fall through to sub-$180 levels would bring the first major support level at $177.06 into play.
Barring a broad-based crypto sell-off, however, we would expect Ethereum to steer clear of the second major support level at $173.30.
