Double Top for the LTC Price
A look at the six-hour time-frame gives us one resistance and one support area.
They are found at ₿0.008 and ₿0.0074 respectively.
When the Litecoin price reached the support area on August 14 and 15, it immediately increased and generated a long lower wick.
This is an indication of existing buying pressure inside that area.
Additionally, while the price made a double top once it reached ₿0.008, the pattern was not combined with bearish divergence.
This makes it more likely that LTC will make another attempt at breaking out.
Let’s take a look at a different time-frame to see if that will occur.
A look at the daily time-frame shows that the LTC price is following a descending support line.
Additionally, it gives us a significant support area at ₿0.007.
The upward movement outlined in the introduction began once the price reached this area.
A look at the daily moving averages (MA) reveals that, while the Litecoin price has made repeated attempts at moving above the 10-day MA, they have all been unsuccessful.
These attempts occurred on August 11, 13, and 14.
The Litecoin price is trading below both MAs — which have not shown any signs of upward movement.
Therefore, we believe that LTC will test the ₿0.007 support area again, before possibly initiating another upward move.
Litecoin Price Summary
The Litecoin price made a double top at ₿0.008 and began to decrease.
