Bitcoin Cash – ABC – Steadies

Bitcoin Cash ABC fell by 1.69% on Friday. Reversing a 1.01% gain from Thursday, Bitcoin Cash ABC ended the day at $309.76.

It was another bearish start to the day for Bitcoin Cash ABC. Bitcoin Cash ABC slid from an early morning intraday high $315.10 to a mid-morning intraday low $297.55.

In spite of the early moves, Bitcoin Cash ABC left the major support and resistance levels untested.

Finding support through the late morning, Bitcoin Cash ABC managed to recover to $300 levels and a range-bound 2nd half of a day.

For the bulls, steering clear of the major support levels and the 62% FIB of $262 was key on the day.

At the time of writing, Bitcoin Cash ABC was down by 0.25% to $309.0. Through the first hour, Bitcoin Cash ABC fell to a morning low $309, kicking off the day in the red.

Bitcoin Cash ABC left the major support and resistance levels untested early on.

For the day ahead, a move through to $310 levels would support a run at the first major resistance level at $317.39.

Bitcoin Cash ABC would need the support of the broader market, however, to break out from Friday’s high $315.1.

Barring a broad-based crypto rally, Bitcoin Cash ABC would likely come up short of $320 levels on the day. Friday’s high and the first major resistance level would cap any upside on the day.

Failure to move through to $310 levels could see Bitcoin Cash ABC take another hit. A fall through to $307 levels would bring the first major support level at $299.84 into play.

Barring a crypto meltdown, Bitcoin Cash ABC should steer clear of sub-$290 support levels on the day.

Litecoin Sees More Red

Litecoin fell by 1.95% on Friday. Reversing a 0.63% gain from Thursday, Litecoin ended the day at $74.76.

Tracking the broader market, Litecoin fell from an early morning intraday high $76.37 to a mid-morning intraday low $72.25.

Falling short of the major resistance levels, Litecoin came within range of the first major support level at $71.98.

Finding support from the broader market, Litecoin visited $76 levels in the late afternoon before easing back.

A relatively range-bound 2nd half of the day limited the downside following the morning reversal.

At the time of writing, Litecoin was down by 0.03% to $74.74. A bearish start to the day saw Litecoin fall from a morning high $74.94 to a low $73.94 before finding support.

For the day ahead, holding above $74.4 levels would support a run at the first major resistance level at $76.68.

Litecoin would need the support of the broader market, however, to break out from Friday’s high $76.39.

Barring a broad-based crypto rally, Litecoin will likely come up short of the second major resistance level at $78.61. Friday’s high and first major resistance level at $76.68 would likely cap any upside.

Failure to hold above $74.4 levels would bring the first major support level at $72.54 into play.

Barring another crypto sell-off, Litecoin should steer clear of the second major support level at $70.33 and the 62% FIB of $70.

Ripple’s XRP Treads Water

Ripple’s XRP steered clear of the major support and resistance levels in the early part of the morning.

Ripple’s XRP would need the support of the broader market, however, to break out from the morning high $0.2620.

In the event of a broad-based crypto rally, the second major resistance level at $0.2712 would likely limit any upside.

Failure to hold onto $0.26 levels could see Ripple’s XRP slide deeper into the red.

A fall through the morning low $0.25876 would bring the first major support level at $0.2557 into play.

Barring a crypto meltdown, Ripple’s XRP should steer clear of sub-$0.25 levels on the day. The second major support level at $0.2501 should limit any downside.
