Ethereum, Litecoin, and Ripple’s XRP – Daily Tech Analysis – May 1st, 2021

For the day ahead

Litecoin would need to avoid the $266 pivot level to support a run at the first major resistance level at $279.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Litecoin to break out from Friday’s high $273.87.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and resistance at $280 would likely cap any upside.

In the event of another breakout, Litecoin could test resistance at $300. The second major resistance level sits at $287.

Failure to avoid a fall through the $266 pivot level would bring the 23.6% FIB of $262 and the first majors support level at $258 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off, Litecoin should steer clear of sub-$250 levels. The second major support level sits at $245.
