Looking at the chart, LTC price recently traded as high as $55.81 and later corrected lower. It moved down and broke the $54.00 level and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last upside wave from the $50.28 low to $55.81 high.
However, the price found a decent support near the $53.00 level and the 50% Fib retracement level of the last upside wave from the $50.28 low to $55.81 high.
Moreover, yesterday’s highlighted key bullish trend line is intact with support at $52.40 on the hourly chart of the LTC/USD pair. Below the trend line support, the $52.00 level is a strong support along with the 100 hourly simple moving average.
If there is a downside break below the trend line, 100 SMA, and the $52.00 support, there could be an extended downside correction towards the $50.00 support.
On the other hand, as long as the price is above the $52.00 support and the 100 hourly SMA, buyers are likely to gain control. In the mentioned case, the price will most likely surpass the $54.00 and $55.00 resistance levels.
Therefore, buying dips can be considered as long as litecoin price is positioned above the $52.00 support and the 100 hourly SMA. On the upside, the $55.00 and $58.00 levels could be targets for buyers.
