LTC-USD Short Term Price Prediction
If the buyers climb above $40, resistance lies at $42. This is followed by resistance at the upper boundary of the wedge. Above this, resistance is located at $44, $47.50 (bearish .382 Fib Retracement) and $50.
On the other side, if the sellers break $39, support lies at the lower boundary of the wedge. Beneath the wedge, support lies at $35, $32.50, and $30.
The RSI returned to the 50 level but is struggling to break above, which shows the bulls are still not in control over the market momentum. Additionally, the Stochastic RSI has produced a bearish crossover signal that might push LTC beneath the wedge.
