During the upside move, there was a break above a crucial hurdle near $115 and $116. Additionally, there was a break above two important bearish trend lines with resistance near $114 and $118 on the hourly chart of the LTC/USD pair.

It indicates that the price recent bounce from the $110 zone is real and there could be more gains in the near term. The pair traded as high as $122.76 and it is currently consolidating gains.

On the downside, an initial support is near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $109.44 low to 122.76 high. However, the most important support is near the $116 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

Moreover, the previous hurdle at $115 may well act as a support if the price moves down from the current levels. On the upside, an immediate resistance is at $122.50, above which the price may perhaps trade towards $130.
