Ethereum, Litecoin, and Ripple’s XRP – Daily Tech Analysis – December 8th, 2020

Ethereum

Ethereum fell by 1.74% on Monday. Following on from a 0.78% decline on Sunday, Ethereum ended the day at $591.47.

It was a mixed start to the day. Ethereum rose to an early morning intraday high $603.40 before hitting reverse.

Falling short of the first major resistance level at $611.84, Ethereum slid to a late intraday low $584.54.

Ethereum fell through the first major support level at $587.69 before a partial recovery to end the day at $591 levels.

At the time of writing, Ethereum was down by 0.29% to $589.75. A mixed start to the day saw Ethereum rise to an early morning high $591.64 before falling to a low $588.70.

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

For the day ahead

Ethereum would need to move through the pivot level at $593.14 to support a run at the first major resistance level at $601.73.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break back through to $600 levels.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Monday’s high $603.40 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of an extended crypto rally, Ethereum could test the second major resistance level at $612.

Failure to move through the $593.14 pivot would bring the first major support level at $582.87 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off, however, Ethereum should steer clear of sub-$570 levels. The second major support level at $574.28 should limit any downside.
