Litecoin’s technical picture
On the intraday level, LTC/USD stays marginally above $60.00 handle, which creates the positive background and nice jumping-off-ground for further growth towards $61.02 (Monday’s high) and $62.22 (August 22 high). Once this area is cleared, the bulls may set their eyes on $70.00 strengthened by DMA50; however, we will need more incentive to push the price that high.
On the downside, the first support is created by $58.40 – this level serves as a stiff resistance since August 18. Once below, the sell-off may be extended towards $57.80 with SMA50 and SMA100 clustered around that level (1-hour chart). The next barrier is created by short-term upside trendline (currently at $57.20), followed by SMA200 (1-hour chart) at $56.80.
