For the day ahead
Ethereum would need to avoid sub-$241 levels to support a run at the first major resistance level at $248.90.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break out from Wednesday’s high $245.39.
Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Wednesday’s high should cap any upside.
Failure to avoid sub-$241 levels could see Ethereum fall deeper into the red.
A fall back through the morning low $242.99 to sub-$241 levels would bring the first major support level at $236.79 into play.
Barring an extended crypto sell-off, however, Ethereum should steer clear sub-$230 levels on the day.
