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

Ethereum

Ethereum rallied by 8.96% on Wednesday. Reversing a 5.65% loss from Tuesday, Ethereum ended the day at $3,529.97.

It was a mixed start to the day. Ethereum fell to an early morning intraday low $3,207.00 before making a move.

Steering clear of the first major support level at $3,093, Ethereum rallied to a late intraday high and a new swing hi $3,550.00.

Ethereum broke through the first major resistance level at $3,461 to end the day at $3,500 levels.

At the time of writing, Ethereum was up by 0.39% to $3,543.68. A mixed start to the day saw Ethereum fall to an early morning low $3,524.56 before rising to a high $3,547.91.


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

For the day ahead

Ethereum would need to avoid a fall through the $3,429 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $3,651 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ethereum to break out from Wednesday’s new swing hi $3,550.00.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and resistance at $3,700 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of another breakout, Ethereum could test resistance at $4,000. The second major resistance level sits at $3,772.

Failure to avoid a fall through the $3,429 pivot would bring the first major support level at $3,308 into play.

Barring an extended sell-off, however, Ethereum should steer clear of sub-$3,000 levels. The second major support level at $3,086 should limit the downside.
