The Hourly View for LTC

Last Updated April 13, 2021, 03:016 GMT

Currently, Litecoin’s price is up $0.13 (0.05%) from the hour prior. This is a reversal of the price action on the previous hour, in which price moved down. Regarding the trend, note that the strongest trend exists on the 50 hour timeframe. Price action traders may also wish to note that we see a pin bar candlestick pattern on Litecoin. Given that we see an uptrend on the 10 hourly candle timeframe, and that such candlestick patterns often denote reversals, this may be worth noting. Of note is that the 50 hour changed directions on LTC; it is now pointing up. The moving averages on the hourly timeframe suggest a choppiness in price, as the 20, 50, 100 and 200 are all in a mixed alignment — meaning the trend across timeframes is inconsistent, indicating a potential opportunity for rangebound traders.
