Ethereum, Litecoin, and Ripple’s XRP – Daily Tech Analysis – June 21st, 2021

·5 min read

Ethereum

Ethereum rose by 3.59% on Sunday. Reversing a 3.14% fall from Saturday, Ethereum ended the week down by 10.65% to $2,242.90.

A mixed start to the day saw Ethereum fall from a mid-morning high $2,219.52 to a midday intraday low $2,042.50.

Ethereum fell through the first major support level at $2,125 and the second major support level at $2,086.

Steering clear of sub-$2,000 support levels, Ethereum rallied to a late intraday high $2,275.78.

The bounce back saw Ethereum break through the first major resistance level at $2,242 to end the day at $2,242 levels.

At the time of writing, Ethereum was down by 0.49% to $2,232.00. A mixed start to the day saw Ethereum rise to an early morning high $2,259.10 before falling to a low $2,231.17.

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

For the day ahead

Ethereum would need to avoid the $2,187 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $2,332 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break back through to $2,300 levels.

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

In the event of a broad-based crypto rally, Ethereum could test resistance at $2,500. The second major resistance level sits at $2,420.

A fall through the $2,187 pivot would bring the first major support level at $2,098 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off, however, Ethereum should steer clear of sub-$2,000 levels. The second major support level sits at $1,954.

First Major Support Level: $2,098

Pivot Level: $2,187

Litecoin fell through the first major support level at $150 and the second major support level at $147.

Steering clear of sub-$140, however, Litecoin rallied to a late intraday high $156.20. Falling short of the first major resistance level at $158, Litecoin eased back to end the day at sub-$155 levels.

At the time of writing, Litecoin was down by 0.35% to $154.33. A mixed start to the day saw Litecoin rise to an early morning high $155.45 before falling to a low $154.18.

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

In the event of an extended breakout, Litecoin could test resistance at $170. The second major resistance level sits at $164.

A fall through the $152 pivot would bring the first major support level at $147 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off, however, Litecoin should steer clear of sub-$140 levels. The second major support level sits at $139.

A sustained fall through the 62% FIB of $174 led to a near-term bearish trend formation from 10th May’s swing hi $413.91.
