Litecoin Price Technical Analysis

Litecoin price continued to move higher and currently showing a lot of positive signs. As highlighted in yesterday’s post, we were looking to buy Litecoins. The idea worked well, as the price traded higher. The best part was the fact that the price also settled above a major resistance area of $3.60. It means the bulls are here to stay and if they remain in control, then more gains are possible moving ahead.

The price traded as high as $3.67 if we look at the hourly chart with the data feed from Bitfinex. If the price corrects lower from the current levels, then an initial support can be around the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last leg from the $3.36 low to $3.67 high. However, the most important support is around the 50% Fib retracement level, as the 100 hourly simple moving average is positioned around it.

Litecoin Price Technical Analysis

The only negative sign for bulls is a bearish trend line formed on the 2-hours chart (data feed from HitBTC). The highlighted trend line and resistance area may stall gains. A break above it could ignite more upsides in the short term.

Hourly RSI – The RSI is above the 50 level, suggesting more gains ahead.

Intraday Support Level – $3.55

Intraday Resistance Level – $3.70
