LTC Price

Furthermore, one resistance area can be traced.

LTC Price

It is found at ₿0.0080.

Most recently, it rejected the Litecoin price on August 12, causing it to create a long upper wick.

Will LTC be successful in breaking out above it?

Possible Upward Move

Analyzing the daily moving averages (MA) provides a considerably bullish sentiment.

The 10- and 20-day MAs have just made a bullish cross. This move was accompanied by the MACD crossing into positive territory.

The previous time this occurred, on May 26, the price went on to increase by 35 percent.

A similar increase from the current price would take LTC to ₿0.0095, very close to the second resistance area of ₿0.0098.

Morning Star

A look at the weekly chart shows that LTC is in the process of completing a “Morning Star”, which is considered a bullish pattern.

The Litecoin price followed a series of bearish candlesticks by creating a bullish doji.

Afterward, it created a bullish engulfing candle, reaching highs above the opening prices of the previous bearish candle.

This often indicates that future increases are in store for the price.

A price close above ₿0.0075 for the week would confirm the pattern.

Future Movement

Going back to the hourly time-frame, we can see that LTC has begun to show signs of weakness, in the form of bearish divergence.

The divergence, however, is not very significant and is only present in short-term time-frames.

Therefore, we believe a slight retracement towards ₿0.0072 is likely before LTC continues its upward movement.

Afterward, we believe it will break out above the first resistance area.

Litecoin Price Summary

The Litecoin price is following a descending support line.

According to our analysis, It is likely to increase above the resistance area at ₿0.0080.

For hypothetical trading purposes, we consider LTC a buy, especially at prices close to ₿0.0072.
