Litecoin Price – Buy Near Trend Line?
Litecoin price after trading near the $3.00 support area for a long time formed a base and started to move higher. The upside move was very strong, as the price cleared 100 simple moving average on the 4-hours chart (data feed via Bitfinex), and tested the $3.45-50 area. The last couple of H4 candles are very bullish, and pointing towards the fact that buyers are in control.
There is a support trend line formed on the H4 chart, which acted as a catalyst for an upside move, and if the price moves down from the current levels, then it can be seen as a buy area. An initial support on the downside is around the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $3.15 low to $3.44 high.
However, there lies a possibility of the extension of correction phase. So, the next support area where buyers may appear could be around the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $3.15 low to $3.44 high.
On the upside, a break above $3.50 may open the doors for a way towards $4.00.
