Daily Litecoin LTC Price Analysis
  • Litecoin price faces bearish correction after three straight bullish days.
  • LTC faces strong resistance at $150.

Prior to today’s correction, the Litecoin price had three consecutive bullish days, wherein the price jumped from $130 to $156, flipped the 20-day and 50-day SMAs from resistance to support.

 

Litecoin Downflow Stopped At 20-day SMA

Litecoin price faced bearish correction today as it dipped to $146. However, the 20-day SMA has proven itself to be a strong support. The relative strength index (RSI) tells us that Litecoin price isn’t overpriced, nor is it underpriced right now.

The IOMAP tells us that the support at the 20-day SMA ($140) is particularly robust. Previously, at this level, 88,000 addresses had purchased 4 million LTC tokens. This barrier appears healthy enough to absorb a tremendous amount of selling pressure.

The 4-hour Litecoin price chart tells us that after dropping to the 20-bar SMA ($144), the buyers have attempted to buy back into the market. The latest bullish candlestick has flipped the 20-bar and 200-bar SMAs from resistance to support. The MACD shows increasing bearish momentum, so the overall sentiment could still be negative.

Litecoin Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels

We expect Litecoin price to drop to the $140 support line. However, the bears don’t have the intensity required to crash below this line.
