LTC/USD price chart

Litecoin price is settled comfortably above the support at $60. The stability followed a correction from lower support at $55. LTC/USD is also trading above a short term falling wedge pattern. The crypto needs to attract a huge volume and a sentimental change towards it in order to utilize the impact of the pattern’s break and pull the price above the hurdle at $70 in preparation for another attack on $80.

For now, technical indicators such as the RSI and the MACD hint that sideways trading is the most probable direction for LTC/USD.
