The price of LTC/USD
on Bitfinex was analyzed at 30-minute intervals from Apr 29 to May 3 to determine the current trading pattern. We do not include euros in this section because only one trading pair is needed to generate the current trading pattern. Both LTC/USD and LTC/EUR are discussed in the final two sections.
On May 1, the price reached a high of $79.42. Several market cycles have been completed. The price has reached lower highs each time.
Tracing these highs gives us a descending resistance line:
On Apr 30, the price reached an hourly low of $74.81. A gradual increase was followed by a gradual decrease. After every cycle, the price has created higher lows. Tracing these lows gives us an ascending support line.
The support and resistance lines combine to create a symmetrical triangle:
It is likely that the price will continue to trade inside the confines of this triangle until a decisive move occurs. In order to predict the direction of the move, we need to take a look at technical indicators.
In this section, the price of LTCUSD is analyzed at two-hour intervals alongside the RSI and the MACD.
About the Indicators:The moving average convergence divergence (MACD) is a trend indicator that shows the relationship between two moving averages (long and short-term) and the price. It is used to measure the strength of a move.
The relative strength index (RSI) is an indicator which calculates the size of the changes in price in order to determine oversold or overbought conditions in the market.
These are traced in the graph below:
On May 1, the price reached a high of $79.4 It reached a similar high on May 3.
Similarly, the RSI and the MACD made the first high on May 1. However, they have proceeded to generate lower values since. This is known as bearish divergence and often precedes price decreases.
The use of these indicators makes it likely that the price will break down from the symmetrical triangle.
Where will it find support?
To better determine actual future price levels, we examine support areas.
Support areasare formed when the price reaches a certain level several times. In the case of a breakout/breakdown, they can provide likely areas of reversal.
One support area is shown for LTC/USD in the first graph and another for LTC/EUR in the second graph:
The closest support area is found near $74.5/€62.5. If the price breaks down from the triangle, it is likely to provide reversal. We believe that the price will eventually reach this area.
Summary Of Analysis
Based on this analysis, it is likely that the price will break down form the triangle and decrease towards the support area we have outlined above.
