Litecoin Technical Analysis

The clearest trend exists on the 14 day timeframe, which shows price moving up over that time. Price action traders in particular will want to note that the 30 day period appears to show price forming a base; this could indicate that a support/resistance level is developing. Or to view things another way, note that out of the past 10 days Litecoin’s price has gone up 8 them. Price action traders may wish to observe the bearish engulfing pattern that has emerged over the past two trading days; in light of the uptrend on the 14 and 90 day charts this may be particularly noteworthy, as it may signal the uptrend is cooling and ready to reverse.

  • From DaddyCool1991:

    #Litecoin averaged 1.43 transactions per second the past 24 hrs.To put that into perspective, the high during the 2017-18 #LTC bull run was 2.62The main difference is that this time around, the trxs per second is boring and normal…not at the peak of a crazy market top.
