Ethereum, Litecoin, and Ripple’s XRP – Daily Tech Analysis – December 19th, 2020

Ethereum

Ethereum rose by 1.77% on Friday. Following a 0.86% gain on Thursday, Ethereum ended the day at $654.66.

A mixed start to the day saw Ethereum fall to an early morning low $629.59 before making a move.

Steering clear of the first major support level at $62.109, Ethereum rallied to a late morning intraday high $664.46.

Falling short of $670 levels and the first major resistance level at $671.35, Ethereum fell back to an afternoon low $631.02.

Finding late support, however, Ethereum moved back through to $654 levels to deliver the upside on the day.

At the time of writing, Ethereum was down by 0.15% to $653.67. A mixed start to the day saw Ethereum rise to an early morning high $656.48 before falling to a low $653.17.

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 $649.57 to support a run at the first major resistance level at $669.55.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break out from Friday’s high $664.46.

Barring another extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and resistance at $670 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of another extended crypto rally, Ethereum could test resistance at $680 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $684.44.

Failure to avoid a fall through the $649.57 pivot would bring the first major support level at $634.68 into play.

Barring an extended sell-off, however, Ethereum should steer clear of sub-$600 levels. The second major support level at $614.70 should limit any downside.
