Litecoin Technical Analysis

The first thing we should note is that Litecoin is now close to its 20 day moving averages, which may act as price barrier for the asset. Trend traders will want to observe that the strongest trend appears on the 90 day horizon; over that time period, price has been moving up. For another vantage point, consider that Litecoin’s price has gone down 10 of the previous 14 trading days. 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 90 day charts this may be particularly noteworthy, as it may signal the uptrend is cooling and ready to reverse.

  • From lite_hause:

    Litecoin is consistently one of the most utilized and traded cryptocurrencies, not to mention the second most available on crypto ATM’s. Yet, it slid down to 11th place via market cap. LTC has done this a couple of times, only to aggressively bounce up.Usability > Speculation

  • From leveragetrading:

    You will all fold below $500 let alone $1000, $2000 or $5000. When #Litecoin breaks above $5000 you will all be short squeezed. There will be no supply except the one coming from daily miners appx. ~7200 $LTC while millions if not billions in the world will want in 🚀
