Looking at the chart, LTC price traded towards the $85.00 resistance and settled above the 100 hourly simple moving average. A swing high was formed near the $84.01 level and recently the price corrected lower.

The pair traded as low as $80.02 and it is currently consolidating losses. An initial resistance is near the $82.00 level and the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $84.01 high to $80.02 low.
However, the main resistance is near the $82.50 level and the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $84.01 high to $80.02 low. A successful close above $82.00 and $82.50 is likely to open the doors for more gains above the $84.00 resistance level.
On the other hand, if there is a downside break below the $80.00 support and the 100 hourly SMA, the price could decline towards the $78.00 or $76.50 support level.
