Litecoin Technical Analysis

The first thing we should note is that the current price of Litecoin is sitting close to its 100 day moving averages; moving average crosses often indicate a change in momentum, so this may be worth keeping an eye on. Volatility for Litecoin has exploded over the past two weeks relative to the past 30 days, which technical traders will want to note. The clearest trend exists on the 90 day timeframe, which shows price moving down over that time. It should be noted, though, that a trend in the opposite direction, going up, exists on the 14 and 30 day timeframes. For additional context, note that price has gone up 7 out of the past 10 days. And for candlestick traders, a special treat: there is a pin bar pattern showing up on the charts as well. Rejoice!
