Litecoin Eyes $82.6 – Technical Analysis

Share

Our previous Litecoin technical analysis stated that Litecoin is in a bear market. However, investors witnessed bullish momentum after the price breached the descending trendline (in red). This breakout could reverse the trend from a bear market to a bull market if the buyers could stabilize the price above the $82.6 resistance.

In today’s trading session, the LTCUSD traded below the 82.6 resistance at about 81.3. This indicates that the bulls have failed to push the price above the $82.6 mark. As a result, the crypto asset’s price has stepped into a consolidation phase since May 3, and it has been ranging in a narrow area between $79 and the $82.6 mark ever since.

The ranging zone is highlighted in the 4-hour chart above.

From a technical standpoint, Litecoin is in a sideways market, ranging above the $79.0 key support and the 50% Fibonacci retracement level. The relative strength index indicator value is 52, signaling that the uptick in momentum might continue. Therefore, the price will likely retest the $82.6 key resistance this week, and If the bulls cross and stabilize the price above it, the path to $84.0 will be paved.

Therefore, traders and investors should closely monitor the $82.6 barrier and look for candlestick patterns. If the chart forms a doji, Longwick bearish candlestick, or bearish engulfing pattern, the price will likely reverse downward, as it did three times in May.

On the flip side, $79.0 is the key support level. If the bears breach this level, selling pressure will likely increase, and the price might experience more losses, with the $74.0 mark as the next target.
