Ethereum, Litecoin, and Ripple’s XRP – Daily Tech Analysis – July 22nd, 2021

·5 min read

Ethereum

Ethereum jumped by 11.74% on Wednesday. Reversing a 1.76% loss from Tuesday, Ethereum ended the day at $1,996.18.

A bearish start to the day saw Ethereum fall to an early morning intraday low $1,754.27 before making a move.

Steering clear of the 62% FIB of $1,725 and the first major support level at $1,724, Ethereum rallied to a late intraday high $2,033.16.

Ethereum broke through the day’s major resistance levels before easing back to sub-$2,000 levels.

The late pullback saw Ethereum fall back through the third major resistance level at $2,024.

At the time of writing, Ethereum was up by 0.81% to $2,012.42. A mixed start to the day saw Ethereum fall to an early morning low $1,982.11 before rising to a high $2,016.51.

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

For the day ahead

Ethereum would need to avoid the $1,928 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $2,102 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to breakout from Wednesday’s high $2,033.16.

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 resistance at $2,250 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $2,207.

A fall the $1,928 pivot would bring the first major support level at $1,823 into play.

Barring an extended sell-off, however, Ethereum should steer clear of the 62% FIB of $1,725. The second major support level sits at $1,649.

Looking at the Technical Indicators

First Major Support Level: $1,823

Pivot Level: $1,928

First Major Resistance Level: $2,102

23.6% FIB Retracement Level: $3,369

38.2% FIB Retracement Level: $2,740

62% FIB Retracement Level: $1,725

Litecoin

Litecoin rallied by 9.66% on Wednesday. Reversing a 5.21% slide from Tuesday, Litecoin ended the day at $117.67.

A bearish start to the day saw Litecoin fall to an early morning intraday low $105.08 before making a move.

Steering clear of the first major resistance level at $103, Litecoin rallied to a late intraday high $119.22.

Litecoin broke through the first major resistance level at $114 to end the day at $117 levels. The second major resistance level at $120 pinned Litecoin back late in the day.

At the time of writing, Litecoin was up by 0.48% to $118.24. A mixed start to the day saw Litecoin fall to an early morning low $116.82 before rising to a high $118.36.

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

For the day ahead

Litecoin would need to avoid the $114 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $123 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Litecoin to break out from Wednesday’s high $119.22.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and resistance at $125 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of an extended breakout, Litecoin could test resistance at $135. The second major resistance level sits at $128.

A fall through the $114 pivot would bring the first major support level at $109 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off, however, Litecoin should steer clear of sub-$100 levels. The second major support level at $100 should limit the downside.

Looking at the Technical Indicators

First Major Support Level: $109

Pivot Level: $114

First Major Resistance Level: $123

23.6% FIB Retracement Level: $178

38.2% FIB Retracement Level: $223

A fall through the $0.5578 pivot would bring the first major support level at $0.5317 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off, however, Ripple’s XRP should steer clear of sub-$0.50 levels. The second major support level sits at $0.4939.
