LTC/USD, the technical picture

Looking technically, LTC/USD created a top at $60.12 on October 9 only to retreat back inside the range limited by $58.00 on the upside and $53.00 on the downside.  

On the intraday level, the initial resistance is created by psychological $55.00 followed by $55.76. This barrier is created by SMA100 (Simple Moving Average) on a four-hour chart coupled with the sloping trendline from June 23 high at $146.20. Once it is out of the way, the upside is likely to gain traction with the next focus on  $60.00.

On the downside, the strong support created by $53.00 may slow down the sellers. However, once it is broken,  $50.39 (September 26 low)  will come into focus. The next support is created by psychological $50.00. A sustainable move lower will take the price towards the March 2019 consolidation zone of $44.00-$45.00.
