- Litecoin price has broken above crucial levels.
- CoinShares has launched a Litecoin Exchange Traded Product (ETP).
Since March 26, the Litecoin price rose by nearly $70 – going up from $172 to $240. With buyers looking to take down the $250 level, CoinShares just announced that they would be releasing a Litecoin Exchange Traded Product (ETP). As per CoinShares:
“LITE will be the third product launched so far this year on CoinShares' institutional-grade ETP platform, CoinShares Physical. Each unit of LITE is backed with 0.20 litecoins at launch, providing investors with passive exposure to the Litecoin network's native asset.”
Litecoin Price Climbed Above Wedge Formation
Over the last three days, the Litecoin price jumped from $195 to $240. During this climb, LTC rose above two crucial levels – the Bollinger band and the wedge pattern. However, do note that the relative strength index (RSI) is about to enter the overbought zone, so it may face a bearish correction as soon as it approaches $250.
