Ethereum had a mixed day on Thursday. By the end of the day, it was down by 3.9%.

Ethereum started the day bullish, a continuation of the momentum that had built up in late Wednesday trading.

Just before daybreak, bulls pushed Ethereum through the 38.2% Fibonacci resistance at $4304.49.

However, this momentum was short-lived. With bears taking control in the broader market, Ethereum slipped back through the 38.2% Fibonacci.

The selloff accelerated, and by early afternoon, Ethereum had pushed through the 23.6% Fibonacci support at $4371.81.

By early evening, the selloff was so heavy that Ethereum hit the multi-month support at $3957.06.

It made a minor bounce off this support towards the end of the day, but bearish momentum proved to be too strong.

Bears retook control, and by the end of the day, Ethereum was trending back to the multi-month support at $3957.06.

A glance at the day ahead

In the day, the key levels to watch are the intra-day resistance at $4079.19, and the multi-month support at $3957.06.

If bulls take control and push Ethereum through the intra-day resistance at $4079.19, the next key level to watch would be the 23.6% Fibonacci resistance at $4171.83.

If this resistance is broken, then prices above $4200 could be seen today, or in the course of the weekend.

On the other hand, if bears take control, and breach the multi-month support at $3957.06, it would be an indicator that bears are firmly in control.

In such a scenario, prices below $3800 could be seen in the day, or in the course of the weekend.

However, if volumes drop, Ethereum could trade between the intra-day resistance at $4079.19 and the multi-month support at $3957.06.
