In spite of 3 consecutive days in the green, Ethereum came up short of the first major resistance level at $329.02.

For the remainder of the week

A move back through the Wednesday morning current week high $339.0 would support a run at $350 levels.

Ethereum would need the support of the broader market, however, to break out from $340 levels.

In the event of a broad-based crypto rally, a breakthrough the second major resistance level at $349.55 would bring the 38.2% FIB of $367 into view. A hold above the first major resistance level at $329.02 would be key mid-week.

A Bitcoin break through to $13,000 levels would give Ethereum momentum through the latter part of the week.

For the current week, however, we would expect Ethereum to come up short of $360 levels.

Failure to move back through the current week high $339.0 could see Ethereum give up some of the current week gains.

A fall through to sub-$325 levels could see Ethereum pullback to $315 levels before any recovery.

Barring a broad-based sell-off in the 2nd half of the week, however, Ethereum should steer well clear of the first major support level at $274.48.

In the event of a broad-based crypto reversal, Ethereum could visit $280 levels before any recovery.
