Litecoin Price Analysis

Recently, there was a strong upward move in litecoin price above the $48.00 and $50.00 resistances against the US Dollar. The LTC/USD pair even broke the $52.00 level and traded towards the $53.50 level. Later, all major cryptos such as bitcoin, ripple, Ethereum, and bitcoin cash declined heavily. Litecoin also followed a similar pattern and declined heavily below the $50.00 support. It broke the $48.00 and $45.00 support levels to enter a bearish zone. There was even a close below the $48.00 level and the 55 simple moving average (4-hours).

However, the $42.50 support level acted as a crucial barrier for sellers. The price started consolidating above $42.50 and formed a support base. It corrected above the $45.00 level and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $53.50 high to $42.53 low. At the outset, the price is facing a significant resistance near the $46.80 and $47.00 levels. Besides, the 55 simple moving average (4-hours) is also positioned near the $47.00 level.

The next key resistance is near the $48.00 level. It represents the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $53.50 high to $42.53 low. The current price action is positive and it seems like buyers could make an attempt to pierce the $47.00 and $48.00 resistance levels. If they succeed, the price could even break the $50.00 barrier and rally towards the $53.50 swing high.
