Litecoin Price Forecast
There was a bearish reaction from the $62.20 level in litecoin price against the US dollar. The LTC/USD pair declined and broke the $60.00 support zone to test the next support at $55.00.
Looking at the chart, LTC price traded close to the $55.00 support and formed a low at $55.31. Later, it corrected higher and broke the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $62.19 high to $55.31 low.
It also moved past the $58.00 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. However, the upside move was capped by the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $62.19 high to $55.31 low. It seems like the pair was not able to break the $60.0 resistance zone.
At the moment, the price is declining and is trading near the $57.50 level. More importantly, there is a major bullish trend line formed with support at $57.00 on the hourly chart of the LTC/USD pair.
The same trend line coincides with the 100 hourly SMA. Should there be a break below the trend line and $57.00, the price may revisit the $55.00 support zone. However, downsides are likely to be limited considering the current technical structure above $55.00.
On the upside, litecoin price (LTC) has to move above the $60.00 resistance area to gain bullish momentum. Above this, the price is likely to retest the $62.20 swing high, which is the next resistance for buyers.
