Litecoin price is also battling the resistance at the descending trendline. The hurdle has been tested several times during the downtrend experienced last week. If the bulls manage to clear the resistance above this line, the move could trigger a massive jump north.

Meanwhile, the 50 SMA is in line to offer immediate support if the current gains become unsustainable. Bearish pressure seems present especially with the 50 SMA above the short term 21 SMA. The key support for LTC/USD is between $25 and $30.
