Ethereum, Litecoin, and Ripple’s XRP – Daily Tech Analysis – January 7th, 2021

Ethereum

Ethereum rallied by 9.81% on Wednesday. Following on from a 5.9% gain on Tuesday, Ethereum ended the day at $1,212.02.

Another mixed start to the day saw Ethereum fall to an early morning intraday low $1,058.32 before making a move.

Steering clear of the first major support level at $1,006.84, Ethereum rallied to a late afternoon intraday high and a new swing hi $1,215.98.

Ethereum broke through the first major resistance level at $1,168.77 before a pullback to $1,120 levels.

Finding late support, however, Ethereum retested resistance at $1,200 late in the day.

At the time of writing, Ethereum was down by 0.87% to $1,201.51. A mixed start to the day saw Ethereum rise to an early morning high and a new swing hi $1,223.77 before falling to a low $1,199.04.

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 $1,162.11 to support a run at the first major resistance level at $1,265.89.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break out from the morning high $1,223.77.

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

In the event of another extended crypto rally, Ethereum could test resistance at $1,400 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $1,319.77.

Failure to avoid a fall through the $1,162.11 pivot would bring the first major support level at $1,108.23 into play.

Barring an extended sell-off, however, Ethereum should steer clear sub-$1000 levels. The second major support level at $1,004.45 should limit the downside.
