Ethereum, Litecoin, and Ripple’s XRP – Daily Tech Analysis – April 26th, 2021

Ethereum

Ethereum rose by 4.78% on Sunday. Partially reversing a 6.46% slide from Saturday, Ethereum ended the week up by 3.60% to $2,322.16.

Recovering from a late morning intraday low $2,166.00, Ethereum rose to mid-afternoon intraday high $2,358.22 before hitting reverse.

Ethereum broke through the first major resistance level at $2,339 before falling back to sub-$2,200 levels.

Steering clear of the first major support level at $2,126, Ethereum broke back through to $2,300 levels to end the day in the green.

At the time of writing, Ethereum was up by 0.23% to $2,327.50. A mixed start to the day saw Ethereum rise to an early morning high $2,330.91 before falling to a low $2,306.03.

For the day ahead

Ethereum would need to avoid the pivot level at $2,282 to support a run at the first major resistance level at $2,398.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break out from $2,350 levels.

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

In the event of a breakout, Ethereum could test resistance at $2,500 levels. The second major resistance level sits at $2,474.

Failure to avoid the $2,282 pivot would bring the first major support level at $2,206 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off, however, Ethereum should steer clear of sub-$2,000 levels. The second major support level at $2,082 and the 23.6% FIB of $2,041 should limit the downside.
