Litecoin Price Analysis LTC Chart

Litecoin price settled above the $32.00 and $33.00 levels against the US Dollar. LTC/USD is currently consolidating, but it looks set for more gains above $35.00-36.00.

Looking at the chart, LTC price traded as high as $35.93 and settled above the 100 hourly simple moving average. Later, the price started a downside correction and traded below the $35.00 and $34.00 support levels.

There was also a break below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent upward move from the $28.30 swing low to $35.93 high. However, the downside move was protected by the $32.80-33.00 zone.

There was no test of the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent upward move from the $28.30 swing low to $35.93 high. The price is currently consolidating above the $32.80 level and it seems like it is preparing for the next move.

More importantly, there is a short term contracting triangle in place with resistance at $34.50 on the hourly chart of the LTC/USD pair. If there is an upside break above the $34.50 resistance, the price will most likely break the $35.00 and $36.00 resistances as well.

On the downside, the $32.80 level is a decent support. If litecoin price breaks the $32.80 support, it could slide towards the $31.80 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The overall price action is positive for LTC and buyers may soon make an attempt to push the price further higher.
