For the day ahead
Ethereum would need to avoid a fall through the $232.71 pivot to support a run at the first major resistance level at $234.54.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break back through to $234 levels.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Friday’s high $234.55 should cap any upside.
Failure to avoid a fall through the $232.71 pivot would bring the first major support level at $230.86 into play.
Barring another extended sell-off, Ethereum should continue to steer clear of sub-$225 levels. The second major support level at $229.03 would come into play in the event of a pullback, however.
