Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC) Daily Tech Analysis – 20 August

After yesterday’s gains, top cryptocurrencies will have to keep away today’s pivots for highs and prevent pullbacks.


Yesterday, ETH managed to gain around 5.58%. With the 0.01% modest gains on Wednesday, the late intraday sessions had the leading alternative coin at $3,184.21.

The coin managed to climb to intraday highs at $3,187 towards the end of the day. That was after staying away from the support at $2,933.

Ethereum’s Day Ahead

For now, ETH has to keep away the pivot at $3,111 to test its initial resistance around $3,261.

However, Ethereum will depend on the broader market backing to overcome the $3,250 levels for higher moves.  Excluding continuous rallies, the initial massive resistance near $3,300 might limit uptrends.
