    It has taken $LTC only two weeks to increase by $100But this still pales in comparison to what #LTC did in 2017In 2017, it took Litecoin only 5 days to rally from $96 to $420The moves we’re seeing now are only a teaser of what’s to come later on in the cycle#Litecoin

  • From bbands:

    Technical analysis doesn’t work on crypto?! I’ve run a completely rigorous system in $ltcusd for 3 years and a month. Today Litecoin finally got back to the level we started at. The system is long only, unleveraged, carries a large cash balance and is up 13.5% annualized. QED

  • From johnkim77:

    – Resist the temptation to jump on a coin that’s already pumped a bunch. – Have patience and confidence in #Litecoin as it’s getting ready for another $100 pump.- Don’t be envious of other people winning, instead congratulate and cheer for them. (It may be hard 🤣)#ŁFG!
