Litecoin price analysis: LTC/USD goes to the stratosphere with 13% growth

  • LTC/USD settles well above critical $50.00 negating the downside pressure
  • DMA200 serves as a strong support area.

Litecoin (LTC) is hovering above $52.00 handle, having recovered from Monday’s low at $45.10. The 5th largest coin with a market value of $3.2B gained over 13% of its value since this time on Tuesday, amid strong buying interest.  

From the longer-term point of view, DMA200 at $44.06 appeared to be strong enough to engineer a strong buying interest that sent LTC above several resistance levels to as high as $54.63.  

While LTC/USD gave in some ground amid healthy correction, it is still moving within the upside trend and holds above all daily SMA levels.

The next short-term bullish target comes at a psychological $54.00. Once it is cleared, the coin may retest the recent high at $54.63 and proceed to the next barrier at $55.00.

On the downside, a sustainable move below $50.00 will tame the short-term bulls and create favorable conditions for a further correction towards $47.30-$7.70 area strengthened by a confluence of SMA50 and SMA100 (4-hour chart).

Once below, the sell-off may continue towards the above-said DMA200 at $44.06.
