For the day ahead
Ethereum would need to move back through the morning high $290.00 to bring the first major resistance level at $296.12 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break out from Friday’s high $287.98 again.
Barring an extended crypto rally, resistance at $290.00 would likely leave Ethereum short of the first major resistance level.
Failure to move through to $290 levels could see Ethereum slide deeper into the red.
A fall back through to sub-$278 levels would bring the first major support level at $268.27 into play.
Barring a crypto meltdown, however, Ethereum should steer clear of sub-$270 levels.
