Ethereum, Litecoin, and Ripple’s XRP – Daily Tech Analysis – December 10th, 2020

Ethereum

Ethereum rose by 3.35% on Wednesday. Partially reversing a 6.21% slide from Tuesday, Ethereum ended the day at $573.38.

It was a bearish start to the day. Ethereum fell through the first major support level at $536.78 to a late morning intraday low $530.32 before making a move.

Finding support going into the afternoon, Ethereum rallied to a late intraday high $578.67.

Falling short of the first major resistance level at $584.13, however, Ethereum eased back to sub-$580 levels to limit the upside on the day.

At the time of writing, Ethereum was down by 0.43% to $570.93. A mixed start to the day saw Ethereum rise to an early morning high $575.62 before falling to a low $570.03.

Ethereum left the major support and resistance levels untested early on.

For the day ahead

Ethereum would need to avoid a fall through the pivot level at $560.79 to support a run at the first major resistance level at $591.26.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break back through to $590 levels.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely cap any upside.

In the event of an extended crypto rally, Ethereum could test resistance at $610 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $609.14.

A fall through the $560.79 pivot would bring the first major support level at $542.91 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off, however, Ethereum should steer clear of sub-$520 levels. The second major support level sits at $512.44.

It was also a bearish start to the day. Litecoin fell to a late morning intraday low $72.15 before making a move.

The reversal saw Litecoin fall through the first major support level at $73.16 before striking a late intraday high $78.24.

For the day ahead

Litecoin would need to avoid a fall through the $75.95 pivot to support a run at the first major resistance level at $79.74.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Litecoin to break out from Wednesday’s high $78.24.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and resistance at $80 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of an extended breakout, Litecoin could test the second major resistance level at $82.04 and resistance at $85.

A fall through the $75.95 pivot level would bring the first major support level at $73.65 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off on the day, however, Litecoin should steer clear of the second major support level at $69.86. The 38.2% FIB of $71 should limit the downside.
