Litecoin price technical picture  

LTC/USD recovery stalled in the recent hours as the selling interest re-emerged on approach to $175.00 resistance strengthened by SMA100 (1-hour) and 61.8% Fibo retracement level. Once the price manages to clear this barrier, the upside momentum is likely to gain traction with the next aim at $78.00 (SMA200 1-hour).  
   
On the downside, a clear move below $70.00 will expose the recent low of $69.38 and $69.00. A sustainable move lower will send an ominous signal to markets, precipitating crash towards $60.00.  

Meanwhile, the intradaty Relative Strength Index stays flat in the neutral position, implying that the coin may enter a consolidation mode, adapting to the shifting sentiments on the market
