Litecoin Price Analysis
In the past few days, there was a steady rise in litecoin price from the $52.00 swing low against the US Dollar. The LTC/USD pair traded above the $55.00 and $58.00 resistance levels to move into a positive zone. The recent upward move was strong as the price even broke the $60.00 barrier. A new monthly high was formed at $62.28 and the price settled well above the 55 simple moving average (4-hours). Recently, there was a downside correction in bitcoin, Ethereum, ripple, Litecoin, EOS, ADA, TRX and other cryptocurrencies.
LTC price corrected lower and traded below the $60.00 support. There was a break below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $52.37 low to $62.28 high. However, the decline was protected near the $57.00 level and the 55 simple moving average (4-hours). Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $52.37 low to $62.28 high acted as a support. Besides, there is a key bullish trend line formed with support at $57.40 on the 4-hours chart of the LTC/USD pair.
The price recovered and moved above the $58.00 and $59.00 levels. However, it seems like the price is struggling to gain momentum above the $60.00 level.
