Triangle Break in Litecoin Price?

Litecoin Price Technical Analysis Litecoin Price Technical Analysis

It looks like that Litecoin price is under a correction phase that may extend for some time. The price moved higher towards the 38.2% Fib level of the last drop from the $3.83 high to $3.47 low (data feed provided by HitBTC) where it found sellers. There were a couple of attempts to break the stated fib level, but buyers failed to break it.

Currently, there is a contracting triangle pattern formed on the hourly chart, which may act as a catalyst for the next move. If there is a break higher, then a move towards the 50% Fib level is possible where sellers may take a stand. It won’t be easy to take the price higher for buyers, as the 100 hourly simple moving average is positioned above the current price and could act as a hurdle.
