Ethereum, Litecoin, and Ripple’s XRP – Daily Tech Analysis – December 3rd, 2020

Ethereum

Ethereum rose by 1.96% on Wednesday. Partially reversing Tuesday’s 5.02% slide, Ethereum ended the day at $597.35.

A mixed start to the day saw Ethereum fall to an early morning intraday low $575.08 before making a move.

Steering clear of the first major support level at $553.91, Ethereum rallied to a late morning intraday high $604.96

Falling well short of the first major resistance level at $627.34, Ethereum fell back into the red before finding late support.

Late in the day, Ethereum briefly revisited $600 levels before easing back to wrap up the day at $597 levels.

At the time of writing, Ethereum was up by 0.49% to $600.27. A mixed start to the day saw Ethereum fall to an early morning low $596.41 before rising to a high $600.40.

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 $592.46 to support a run at the first major resistance level at $609.85.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break out from Wednesday’s high $604.96.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and resistance at $610 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of another breakout, Ethereum could test resistance at $620 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $622.34.

Failure to avoid a fall through the $592.46 pivot would bring the first major support level at $579.97 into play.

Barring an extended sell-off, however, Ethereum should steer well clear of sub-$570 levels. The second major support level sits at $562.58.
