An afternoon recovery saw Bitcoin Cash recover to an afternoon high $436.2 before settling. The day’s first major resistance level at $469.67 was left untested on the day, with the new swing lo reaffirming the extended bearish trend formed at early May’s swing hi $1,849.9.

For the day ahead, holding on to $430 levels would support another run at the first major resistance level at $445, with a break through to $450 levels and a run at the day’s second major resistance level at $457.4 in play should the EU news wires be crypto friendly later in the day.

Failure to hold on to $430 levels could see Bitcoin Cash hit reverse later in the day, with a pullback through a morning low $432.5 bringing sub-$420 levels and the day’s first major support level at $415.10 into play.

A pullback to test the day’s second major support level at $397.6 could be on the cards should EU Finance Ministers threaten the European cryptomarkets with new rules and regs later today.

Litecoin in Recovery Mode

Litecoin fell by 0.52% on Wednesday, following on from Tuesday’s 4.4% slide, to end the day at $51.7.

For the day ahead, holding on to $53 levels would support another run at the day’s first major resistance level to bring $54 levels into play, with a run at the day’s second major resistance level at $55.21 on the cards should the news wires remain friendly on the day, focus being on the EU later today.

Failure to hold on to $53 levels could see Litecoin hit reverse later in the day, with a pullback through to $50 levels bringing the day’s first major support level at $48.57 into play, support to be dictated by the news wires this evening, which could ultimately see the broader market see deep red.

Ripple Moves Ahead

Failure to move back through the morning high could see Ripple’s XRP hit reverse later in the day, with a fall through $0.265 bringing $0.25 levels and the day’s first major support level at $0.2575 into play before any recovery that would be news dependent.
