Litecoin’s technical picture

The initial support is created by psychological $66.00 that coincides with SMA50 (Simple Moving Average) 1-hour. It is followed by the middle line of 4-hour Bollinger Band at $65.50 anf SMA100 1-hour on approach to $ 65.00. Once this support area is cleared the sell-off is likely to gain traction with the next focus on $63.00 strengthened by the lower line of 4-hour Bollinger Band ($62.90). Then the recent low of $62.37 will come into view.

On the upside, we will need to see a sustainable move above the recent high of $67.98 to get a chance to proceed to $70.00 and $70.70 (SMA100 4-hour).  

$65.00 (SMA100 1-hour) to allow for an extended recovery towards $65.70 (the upper line of 1-hour Bollinger Band). The next resistance awaits us on approach to $68.80 (SMA50 4-hour) and $70.00.
