·5 min read

Ethereum

Ethereum rose by 0.32% on Thursday. Partially reversing a 5.19% slide from Wednesday, Ethereum ended the day at $1,587.08.

A bearish start to the day saw Ethereum fall to an early morning intraday low $1,548.69 before making a move.

While steering clear of the first major support level at $1,508, Ethereum fell through the 23.6% FIB of $1,579.

Finding support in the early hours, however, Ethereum rallied to a late morning intraday high $1,622.27 before hitting reverse.

While falling short of the first major resistance level at $1,699, Ethereum broke back through the 23.6% FIB.

The reversal, however, saw Ethereum revisit sub-$1,560 levels before ending the day at $1,587 levels.

At the time of writing, Ethereum was up by 1.02% to $1,603.21. A mixed start to the day saw Ethereum fall to an early morning low $1,586.81 before rising to a high $1,604.43.

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 $1,586 to support a run at the first major resistance level at $1,623.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break back through to $1,620 levels.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Thursday’s high $1,622.27 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of a breakout, Ethereum could test resistance at $1,700 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $1,660.

Failure to avoid a fall through the $1,586 pivot would bring the 23.6% FIB of $1,579 and the first major support level at $1,550 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off, however, Ethereum should steer clear of $1,500 levels. The second major support level at $1,512 should limit the downside.

A mixed start to the day saw Litecoin rise to an early morning intraday high $178.24 before hitting reverse.

Falling short of the first major resistance level at $191, Litecoin slid to a mid-day intraday low $167.78.

Steering clear of the first major support level at $167, Litecoin revisited $175 levels before easing back.

At the time of writing, Litecoin was up by 1.08% to $173.34. A bullish start to the day saw Litecoin rise from an early morning low $171.47 to a high $173.39.

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

For the day ahead

Litecoin would need to avoid a fall back through the $173 pivot level to support a run at the first major resistance level at $177.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Litecoin to break out from $175 levels.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Thursday’s high $178.24 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of an extended rally, Litecoin could test resistance at $190 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $183.

Failure to move through the $173 pivot level would bring the first major support level at $167 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off, Litecoin should steer clear of sub-$160 levels.

The 38.2% FIB of $163 and the second major support level at $162 should limit the downside.

Finding early morning support, however, Ripple’s XRP rallied to a late intraday high $0.52400.

In spite of the rebound, Ripple’s XRP fell short of the 23.6% FIB of $0.5320 and the first major resistance level at $0.5435.

The recovery did see Ripple’s XRP break back through the 38.2% FIB of $0.4632, however, to end the day at $0.51 levels.

At the time of writing, Ripple’s XRP was up by 2.66% to $0.52595. A bullish start to the day saw Ripple’s XRP rise from an early morning low $0.51053 to a high $0.52842.

Ripple’s XRP left the major support and resistance levels untested early on.

For the day ahead

Ripple’s XRP will need to avoid a fall through the $0.4978 pivot level to bring 23.6% FIB of $0.5320 and the first major resistance level at $0.5385 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ripple’s XRP to break back through to $0.53 levels.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the 23.6% FIB and first major resistance level would cap any upside.

In the event of an extended rally, Ripple’s XRP could test resistance at $0.58 levels before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $0.5648.

Failure to avoid a fall through the $0.4978 pivot would bring the first major support level at $0.4715 and the 38.2% FIB of $0.4632 into play.
