Can Sellers Make it?

Litecoin Price Technical Analysis Litecoin Price Technical Analysis

Litecoin price fell sharply this week after trading as high as $4.30. The downside was stalled near $3.50 where buyers managed to hold the ground. Currently, the price is trading in a range and consolidating losses. A strong resistance is building near the 100 hourly simple moving average (data feed from Bitfinex), as the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $4.30 high to $3.50 low is also positioned with it.

In short, a range resistance is formed near $3.65-70, which can be seen as a breakout zone. Similarly, on the downside, the recent low of $3.49 can be seen as a support. A break on either side may ignite the next rally in the near term.
