For the day ahead
Ethereum would need to avoid a fall through the $278.59 pivot to support a run at the first major resistance level at $288.80.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break out from Friday’s high $287.8.
Barring another extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level should cap any upside.
Failure to avoid a fall through the $278.59 pivot would bring the first major support level at $269.39 into play.
Barring an extended sell-off, however, Ethereum should steer clear of sub-$260 levels. The second major support level sits at $259.18.
