Ethereum, Litecoin, and Ripple’s XRP – Daily Tech Analysis – January 6th, 2021

Ethereum

Ethereum rose by 5.9% on Tuesday. Following on from a 6.32% rally on Monday, Ethereum ended the day at $1,103.73.

Another mixed start to the day saw Ethereum rise to an early morning intraday high $1,136.93 before hitting reverse.

Falling short of the first major resistance level at $1,178.80, Ethereum slid to a mid-morning intraday low $975.00.

Steering clear of the first major support level at $896.14, Ethereum bounced back to $1,100 levels late in the day.

At the time of writing, Ethereum was down by 1.70% to 1,082.83. A mixed start to the day saw Ethereum rise to an early morning high $1,114.24 before falling to a low $1,066.62.

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

For the day ahead

Ethereum would need to avoid a fall back through the pivot level at $1,071.89 to support a run at the first major resistance level at $1,168.80.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break out from Tuesday’s high $1,136.93.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and resistance at $1,150 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of another extended crypto rally, Ethereum could test resistance at $1,300 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $1,233.82.

Failure to avoid a fall back through the $1,071.89 pivot would bring the first major support level at $1,006.84 into play.

Barring an extended sell-off, however, Ethereum should continue to steer clear sub-$950 levels. The second major support level sits at $909.96.
