June 18th Technical Analysis: Litecoin & Ripple

Litecoin

Litecoin rose by 0.36% on Thursday. Following a 4.90% decline on Wednesday, Litecoin ended the day at $167.18.

Tracking the broader market, Litecoin rose to a late morning intraday high $173.40 before hitting reverse.

Falling short of the 62% FIB of $174 and the first major resistance level at $176, Litecoin slid to a late intraday low $162.88.

Steering clear of the first major support level at $161.55, Litecoin moved back through to $167 levels and back into positive territory.

At the time of writing, Litecoin was down by 0.35% to $166.60. A bearish start to the day saw Litecoin fall from an early morning high $167.24 to a low $166.44.

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

For the day ahead

Litecoin would need to move through the $168 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $173 and the 62% FIB of $174 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Litecoin to break back through to $170 levels.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the 62% FIB would likely cap any upside.

In the event of an extended breakout, Litecoin could test resistance at $180. The second major resistance level sits at $178.

Failure to move through the $168 pivot would bring the first major support level at $162 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off, however, Litecoin should steer clear of the second major support level at $157.

A sustained fall through the 62% FIB of $174 would form a near-term bearish trend from 10th May’s swing hi $413.91.

Ripple’s XRP

Ripple’s XRP rose by 0.89% on Thursday. Partially reversing a 3.95% fall from Wednesday, Ripple’s XRP ended the day at $0.84073.

A bullish start to the day saw Ripple’s XRP rise to a late morning intraday high $0.86104 before hitting reverse.

Ripple’s XRP broke through the 62% FIB of $0.8573 and the first major resistance level at $0.8608.

The reversal, however, saw Ripple’s XRP slide back through the major support level and 62% FIB to a late intraday low $0.82341.

Steering clear of the first major support level at $0.8148, however, Ripple’s XRP ended the day at $0.84 levels.

At the time of writing, Ripple’s XRP was down by 0.12% to $0.83974. A bearish start to the day saw Ripple’s XRP fall from an early morning high $0.84006 to a low $0.83974.

Ripple’s XRP left the major support and resistance levels untested early on.

For the day ahead

Ripple’s XRP will need to move through the $0.8417 pivot to bring the 62% FIB of $0.8573 and the first major resistance level at $0.8600 into play.

Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Ripple’s XRP to break back through to $0.85 levels.

Barring an extended crypto rally, the 62% FIB and the first major resistance level would likely cap any upside.

In the event of another extended rally, Ripple’s XRP could test resistance at $0.90. The second major resistance level sits at $0.8794.

Failure to move through the $0.8417 pivot would bring the first major support level at $0.8224 into play.

Barring another extended sell-off, however, Ripple’s XRP should steer clear of sub-$0.80 levels. The second major support level at $0.8041 should limit the downside.

A sustained fall through the 62% FIB of $0.8573 would form a near-term bearish trend from 14th April’s swing hi $1.96598.

First Major Support Level: $0.8224
