    Litecoin Price Analysis LTC Chart

    Looking at the chart, LTC price gained bullish momentum above the $40.00 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average. It even broke the $45.00 resistance and traded to a new yearly high near the $46.93 level.

    Later, there was a downside correction below the $45.00 level and the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $40.50 low to $46.93 high. However, there are many supports on the downside near the $43.00, $42.00 and $40.00 levels.

    There is also a bullish flag pattern formed with support at $43.00 on the hourly chart. The flag support is near the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $40.50 low to $46.93 high.

    If there is a downside break, the price could correct towards the $40.60 and $40.00 support levels. On the other hand, if there is a fresh upward move, the price could retest the $45.00 and $46.00 levels.

    A break above the $46.00 level might push the price to a new yearly high above the $46.93 level. Overall, litecoin price is placed in a strong uptrend above the $40.00 support. There could be a few swing moves in the short term, but dips in LTC remain supported as long as the price is above $40.00.
