For the day ahead
Ethereum would need to move through to $242 levels to support a run at the first major resistance level at $245.74.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break out from the morning high $240.04.
Barring a broad-based crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Thursday’s high should cap any upside.
Failure to move through to $242 levels could see Ethereum see a 3rd consecutive day in the red.
A fall back through the morning low $237.67 would bring the first major support level at $236.49 into play.
Barring an extended crypto sell-off, however, Ethereum should continue to steer clear sub-$230 levels on the day.
The second major support level at $232.95 should limit any downside on the day.
