Top cryptocurrencies face another mixed start on Friday. The virtual assets will have to overpower today’s pivot zones to avoid more losses.
On Thursday, Ethereum (ETH) declined by 4.19%. That way, the leading ‘smart’ contract project ended yesterday at $3,093.2, after losing 1.82% of Wednesday’s surges. However, early sessions yesterday had Ethereum rising to an intraday high of $3,251.05 before reversing.
Meanwhile, the altcoin failed to test the resistance at $3,292, sliding to the $3,056 lows during mid-day sessions. The downside actions saw the token falling below the initial resistance at $3,123 before recovering towards the $3,056 price levels.
Bearishness towards the end of yesterday had ETH trading at the sub-$3,100 levels. While publishing this content, Ethereum stands at $3,092 after losing 0.01%. However, early Friday sessions had ETH falling to $3,050 before climbing towards $3,146.
ETH’s Day Ahead
For now, ETH has to avoid breaking the pivot at $3,133 to test the initial obstacle at $3,211. However, bulls will have to step up for ETH to maintain an upside stance. With a broader market rally, the altcoin will overcome the $3,150 levels.
Without continuous rally, ETH will have its uptrends capped by Thursday’s high and massive resistance at $3,251.05. Meanwhile, upside catalysts will see the alternative coin hitting the resistance near the 23.6% Fibonacci at $3,369. The second critical resistance lies near $3,329.
