Litecoin Price Analysis (LTC)

This past week, we saw a downside correction in bitcoin, Ethereum, EOS, ripple, litecoin and other altcoins against the US dollar. The LTC/USD pair declined below the $85.00 and $80.00 support levels before buyers appeared near the $75.00-76.00 support area.

Looking at the 4-hour chart, LTC price traded as low as $75.60 and recently recovered above the $77.50 resistance area. There was a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $92.49 high to $75.60 low.

More importantly, there was a close above the $80.00 level and
the 100 simple moving average (4-hour). The price is currently testing the
$85.00 resistance and the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $92.49
high to $75.60 low.

There is also a major bearish trend line formed with
resistance near the $86.20 level on the 4-hour chart. A successful break above
the trend line and $87.00 may perhaps open the doors for more gains.
