Ethereum, Litecoin, and Ripple’s XRP – Daily Tech Analysis – October 9th, 2021

Listen to this article

For the day ahead

Litecoin would need to move through the $178 pivot and 23.6% FIB of $178 to bring the first major resistance level at $181 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Litecoin to break back through to $180 levels

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Friday’s high $183.44 would likely cap the upside.

In the event of another breakout, Litecoin could test resistance at $190 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $187.

Failure to move through the $178 pivot and the 23.6% FIB of $178 would bring the first major support level at $172 into play.

Barring an extended sell-off, Litecoin should steer clear of sub-$165. The second major support level at $169 should limit the downside.
