Looking at IntoTheBlock’s In/Out of the Money Around Price “IOMAP,” we can see a lack of substantial resistance barriers in LTC’s path back into the $200 zone. If the bears do step back in for a price correction, there are two strong support zones on the downside to absorb this selling pressure. These two support walls lie at $160 and $150. The latter of these has had 50,000 addresses purchase 3.6 million Litecoin tokens.

The 4-hour chart shows that Litecoin has consistently found support at the 20-bar SMA. Litecoin has also reversed the parabolic SAR in this timeframe from bearish to bullish. All this bodes well from the future price action.

Do note that the relative strength index (RSI) has crept into the overbought zone. This could trigger a short term bearish correction.
