During the upside move, there was a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $141.29 high to $114.98 low. However, the upside move faced a very strong resistance near $124.125.

The pair also failed to test the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $141.29 high to $114.98 low. Looking at the current price action, litecoin could make another attempt to break the trend line.
If buyers succeed, the price may perhaps move above $124 and trade towards $130 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. On the flip side, if the price fails to move above $122 and $124, it will most likely retest the $115 support.
Below the mentioned $115 support, LTC/USD may well trade below the $110 level and it could even test the $100 handle in the near term.
