Ethereum broke through the inclined resistance level of 1874.20 to 1851.95 and during the strengthening reached the horizontal resistance level of 1823.44 (marked with a red dotted line).

Litecoin rose rapidly, gaining a foothold above the local level of 219.47. The next target for LTC USD at 228.90 was also achieved. Now this level is being tested for strength, but conclusions about the probability of a true breakdown will still be premature. An alternative scenario, if consolidation above 228.90 fails, is to move south and return to the intermediate horizontal of 219.47.
