Broken Resistance and Support

Litecoin Price Technical Analysis Litecoin Price Technical Analysis

Litecoin price finally managed to gain pace and traded higher. It broke a major bearish trend line on the hourly chart (data feed from Bitfinex), which was acting as a resistance for the price and now it is preventing the downside move. The 100 hourly simple moving average played well, and helped the buyers to take the price higher.

The price is trading near the broken resistance area, which is acting as a support now. It is also coinciding with the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $3.26 low to $3.84 high. In short, the current support area of $3.50-60 holds the key for an upside move. As long as the price is above it, there are chances of it trading higher.
