Litecoin’s price was facing a major barrier in the form of a bearish trend line on the hourly chart (data feed from Bitfinex). However, buyers managed to take the price above the highlighted trend line and resistance area. Moreover, the price also closed above the 100 hourly simple moving average. The price traded as high as $3.78, and it looks set for a move towards the last swing high of $3.85.

If the price attempts to move lower from the current levels or corrects lower, then the 100 hourly MA may act as a support area in the short term. It is also positioned with the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level of the last wave from the $3.55 low to $3.78 high. So, it won’t be easy for sellers to break it, and we can consider this area as buying zone.
