Ethereum, Litecoin, and Ripple’s XRP – Daily Tech Analysis – October 14th, 2020

Ethereum

Ethereum fell by 1.40% on Tuesday. Partially reversing a 3.30% rally from Monday, Ethereum ended the day at $381.37.

It was a mixed start to the day. Ethereum rose to an early morning intraday high $387.88 before hitting reverse.

Falling short of the first major resistance level at $399.36, Ethereum fell to an early afternoon intraday low $374.29.

Steering clear of the first major support level at $369.95, Ethereum revisited $383 levels before easing back.

At the time of writing, Ethereum was down by 0.04% to $381.23. A mixed start to the day saw Ethereum rise to an early morning high $382.21 before falling to a low $380.56.

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

ETH/USD 14/10/20 Hourly Chart

For the day ahead

Ethereum would need to avoid a fall back through the $381.18 pivot to support a run at the first major resistance level at $388.07.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break out from Tuesday’s high $387.88.

Barring another extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely cap any upside. In the event of another breakout, Ethereum could test the second major resistance level at $394.77. Resistance at $400 would likely pin Ethereum back, however.

Failure to avoid a fall back through the $381.18 pivot would bring the first major support level at $374.48 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off, however, Ethereum should avoid the second major support level at $367.59 and the 38.2% FIB of $367.

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

In the event of another breakout, Litecoin would likely test the second major resistance level at $51.70. Resistance at $52 would likely cap any upside, however.

Failure to avoid a fall through the $49.84 pivot level would bring the first major support level at $48.96 into play.

Barring an extended sell-off on the day, however, Litecoin should steer clear of the second major support level at $47.98.

For the day ahead

Ripple’s XRP will need to move through the $0.2565 pivot to support a run at the first major resistance level at $0.2603.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ripple’s XRP to break out from Tuesday’s high $0.25998.

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

In the event of an extended rally, the second major resistance level at $0.2638 would likely come into play.

Failure to move through the $0.2565 pivot would bring the first major support level at $0.2529 into play.

Barring another extended crypto sell-off, Ripple’s XRP should steer clear of sub-$0.2450 levels. The second major support level at $0.2491 should limit any downside.
