Meanwhile, Binance has added LTC trading against one of the most popular fiat currencies, GBP. The largest crypto exchange by volume also trades Litecoin against other fiat currencies such as EUR, USD, RUB, BRL. 

Since 2021 began, Litecoin has not had any significant price action. Having started the year at the $129 level, it reached a peak of $239 on February 20 and has been trading in a range below $200 since.

Litecoin Price is Expected To Reach These Levels

Litecoin price will probably rebound and attempt to hit the 50-day SMA again. Do note that the 50-day SMA has crossed above the 20-day SMA to form a bearish cross pattern. LTC will need to close a candlestick above these curves to negate the bearish effects.
