Litecoin On-Chain Analytics Is Positive
On-chain analysis from IntoTheBlock has hinted at a bullish sentiment among traders for Litecoin. As the price rallies, it is anticipated to hit a local top. Currently, the concentration by large HODLers is around 50%, and the evidence shows that there is scope for further rallying and price discovery. Although a new ATH will require higher liquidity and volatility, the current trading volume is high enough on top markets to boost the price.
Based on the trade volume on spot exchanges, there has been an increase in demand, which could push the price closer to $240. After Ether recorded daily gains of 5.11%, the alt rally has continued, boosting the investment inflow to LTC. This increased inflow and the overall bullish sentiment are evident from the price surge on top spot exchanges.
