Ethereum, Litecoin, and Ripple’s XRP – Daily Tech Analysis – December 22nd, 2020

Ethereum

Ethereum slid by 4.72% on Monday. Following on from a 3.10% fall on Sunday, Ethereum ended the day at $608.07.

Falling well short of the first major resistance level at $659.38, Ethereum slid to a mid-day intraday low $596.90.

The sell-off saw Ethereum fall through the first major support level at $619.44. Finding support at the second major support level at $600.48, Ethereum revisited $620 levels before falling back to sub-$610.

The first major support level at $619.44 pinned Ethereum back late in the day.

For the day ahead

Ethereum would need to move through the pivot level at $617.77 to support a run at the first major resistance level at $638.65.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break back through to $630 levels.

Barring another extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and resistance at $640 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of another extended crypto rally, Ethereum could test resistance at $660 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $669.22.

Failure to move through the $617.77 pivot would bring the first major support level at $587.20 into play.
