Ethereum, Litecoin, and Ripple’s XRP – Daily Tech Analysis – October 4th, 2021

Ethereum

Ethereum rose by 0.93% on Sunday. Following a 2.31% gain on Saturday, Ethereum ended the week up by 11.74% to $3,420.07.

A mixed start to the day saw Ethereum fall to an early morning intraday low $3,343.36 before making a move.

While steering clear of the first major support level at $3,275, Ethereum fell through the 23.6% FIB of $3,369.

Finding early support, however, Ethereum rallied to a late intraday high $3,489.18.

Ethereum back broke through the 23.6% FIB to test the first major resistance level at $3,486 before easing back.


The pullback saw Ethereum fall back through the first major resistance level to sub-$3,390 levels before ending the day at $3,420 levels.

At the time of writing, Ethereum was down by 0.17% to $3,414.38. A mixed start to the day saw Ethereum rise to an early morning high $3,420.87 before falling to a low $3,412.74.

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

For the day ahead

Ethereum would need to move back through the $3,418 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $3,492 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break out from Sunday’s high $3,489.18.

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

In the event of a broad-based crypto rally, Ethereum could test resistance at $3,600 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $3,563.

Failure to move back through the $3,418 pivot would bring the 23.6% FIB of $3,369 and the first major support level at $3,346 into play.

Barring an extended sell-off, however, Ethereum should steer clear of the second major support level at $3,272.

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

In the event of another breakout, Litecoin could test resistance at the 23.6% FIB of $178 and the second major resistance level at $180.
