Litecoin Price – Buy with a break?
Litecoin price found bids this past week, and every downside move found buyers. There was a strong support formed near $3.30, which acted as a barrier for sellers. The price is currently trading higher and looking for a break higher. There is a bearish trend line formed on the 4-hours chart (data feed via Bitfinex), which is currently acting as a hurdle for more gains.

The RSI is well above the 50 level, calling for more gains. A break above the trend line and resistance area could take the price towards the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $3.58 high to $3.30 low. The price may even head towards the $3.60 level if sellers step back.
On the downside, an initial support can be around the $3.40 level, followed by the most important area at $3.30.
