Litecoin Price Prediction: LTC eyes down $90 resistance following bullish weekend

Last Updated December 14th 2020

Daily Litecoin LTC Technical Analysis

  • Litecoin has broken above the downward channel and the 20-day SMA.
  • 4-hour LTC is sitting on top of 200-bar SMA.

Litecoin surged over the weekend, rising from $72 to $81.50. As of now, the price is eyeing down critical resistance at $90. Keep in mind that this barrier has previously thwarted the digital silver twice before. Once, it forced the price to drop to $69, and the second time, LTC dropped to $79.50, charting the double top in the process.


Litecoin bulls look to break into $100-area

The bulls took charge this weekend and broke above the 20-day SMA and the parallel channel's upper bound. Having broken past these critical resistance levels, the price has to now go past the $90-barrier and enter the $100 zone.

The MACD in the daily time-frame shows that the market momentum is reversing from bearish to bullish. 


Short-term drop is on the cards?

Looking into the 4-hour chart, we can see that the price has failed to cross above the $82.25 resistance barrier. Looking into the chart, one can see that this line had previously acted as healthy support before, holding the price up.

The bulls have found support on the 200-bar SA, which should give them another opportunity to break past the $82.25 obstacle and continue their upward surge.


Key price levels to watch for LTC

In the short-term, the price has to overcome the $82.25 resistance to continue its upward surge. The digital silver needs to overcome the $90 resistance to continue its charge into the $100 zone in the long-term.
