Ether (ETH) and Litecoin (LTC) Prices Test Key Support Levels

Ether (ETH) and Litecoin (LTC) Prices Test Key Support Levels

Nick Cawley, Senior Strategist

Ether and Litecoin - News and Talking Points

- Litecoin bounces off support but how long will this hold?

- Ether nears support – set-up remains weak.

Litecoin (LTC) and Ether (ETH) Test Support Levels

We wrote last Friday about the weakness seen in the cryptocurrency market – currently $35 billion lower over the weekend at $306 billion - and highlighted a range of technical support levels that we felt the market would test. While Bitcoin (BTC) and Ripple (XRP) still have further to fall before coming up against support, Litecoin (LTC) and Ether (ETH) have touched, or are very close to touching, key levels which may determine their direction in the short-term.

Over the weekend Litecoin (LTC) bounced off the March 30 – April1 double low at $110 but the rebound currently looks weak and the token looks likely to re-test this support level. A break and close below opens the way to the February 2 low at $102 ahead of the psychological $100 level.

Ether (ETH) also probed downside support over the weekend, breaking through $567 with ease. The next level is the December 22 swing low at $497 before a large gap until the April 1 low at $359 comes into play.
