Litecoin Price Analysis LTC USD

More importantly, there was a break above an important bearish trend line with resistance near $83.50 on the hourly chart of the LTC/USD pair. However, the upside move was capped by the previous support at $85.00.

Moreover, the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $90.61 high to $81.38 low and the 100 hourly simple moving average also acted as key resistances. If there is a break and close above the $85.00 resistance, there could be more gains in the near term.

The next resistance is near the $87.00 level, above which, the price will most likely surge above the $88.00 level. On the flip side, if the price fails to move above $85.00 and the 100 hourly SMA, it could retest the $82.60 support.

Below the $82.60 support, litecoin price may perhaps revisit the last swing low near $81.50. Overall, LTC/USD is trading in a positive zone as long it is above $82.60 and $81.50. Below these, the price may well move into a short-term bearish zone towards $75.00.
