Ethereum, Litecoin, and Ripple’s XRP – Daily Tech Analysis – December 11th, 2020

Ethereum

Ethereum fell by 2.61% on Thursday. Partially reversing a 3.35% gain from Wednesday, Ethereum ended the day at $558.32.

It was a mixed start to the day. Ethereum rose to an early morning intraday high $575.62 before hitting reverse.

Falling short of the first major resistance level at $591.26, Ethereum slid to a mid-afternoon intraday low $547.83.

Steering clear of the first major support level at $542.91, however, Ethereum found late support to limit the losses on the day.

At the time of writing, Ethereum was down by 0.18% to $557.34. A mixed start to the day saw Ethereum rise to an early morning high $560.62 before falling to a low $557.28.

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

For the day ahead

Ethereum would need to move back through the pivot level at $560.59 to support a run at the first major resistance level at $573.35.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break back through to $570 levels.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Thursday’s high $575.62 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of an extended crypto rally, Ethereum could test resistance at $590 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $588.38.

Failure to move back through the $560.59 pivot would bring the first major support level at $545.56 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off, however, Ethereum should continue to steer clear of sub-$520 levels. The second major support level at $532.80 should limit the downside.

Litecoin would need to move through the $75.15 pivot to support a run at the first major resistance level at $77.20.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Litecoin to break back through to $77 levels.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Thursday’s high $77.64 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of an extended breakout, Litecoin could test the second major resistance level at $79.69 and resistance at $80.

Failure to move through the $75.15 pivot level would bring the first major support level at $72.66 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off on the day, however, Litecoin should steer clear of sub-$70 levels. The second major support level at $70.61 and the 38.2% FIB of $71 should limit the downside.

Steering clear of the 38.2% FIB of $0.5285 and the first major support level at $0.5222, Ripple’s XRP bounced back to a late intraday high $0.58874.

While breaking back through the 38.2% FIB, Ripple’s XRP fell short of the first major resistance level at $0.6247.

For the day ahead

Ripple’s XRP will need to move back through the $0.5711 pivot level to bring the first major resistance level at $0.5895 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ripple’s XRP to break out from Thursday’s high $0.58874.

In the event of an extended rally, Ripple’s XRP could test the second major resistance at $0.6071 and the 23.6% FIB of $0.6274.

Failure to move back through the $0.5711 pivot would bring the first major support level at $0.5535 into play.

Barring another extended crypto sell-off, Ripple’s XRP should avoid the 38.2% FIB of $0.5285. The second major support level at $0.5352 should limit the downside.
