Litecoin Price Analysis
After forming a support base above $62.00, litecoin price started a solid upward move against the US Dollar. The LTC/USD pair broke the $70.00 resistance level and the 55 simple moving average (4-hours). Finally, there was a break above the $72.00 level, but the price failed to continue higher. A swing high was formed near $73.37 before the price started a downside correction.
There was a break below the $72.00 level plus the 50% Fib retracement level of the last leg from the $63.98 low to $73.37 high. Moreover, there was a spike below the $70.00 level. However, the decline was protected by the $68.00 support area. The 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last leg from the $63.98 low to $73.37 high is also a decent support base.
More importantly, the 55 simple moving average (4-hours) is acting as a strong support near the $68.00 and $69.00 levels. Below the $68.00 support, there is a crucial bullish trend line forming with support near $66.50 on the 4-hours chart of the LTC/USD pair. Below the trend line support, the price is likely to extend its decline towards the $65.00 support area.
A successful close below the $65.00 support could start a fresh bearish decrease in the near term. On the upside, an immediate resistance is near the $70.00 level and a bearish trend line. A successful break above the $70.00 and $72.00 resistance levels might start a decent increase. The next key resistance is near $75.00, above which the price could grind higher towards $80.00.
