LTC/USD: The technical picture
Litecoin (LTC) bottomed at $57.76 on August 22 and has been growing strongly ever since. The coin has settled in the upper part of the daily Bollinger Band and its middle line at $59.70 now serves as local support. Once it is broken, the sell-off may be extended towards the recent low of $57.76; however, the critical technical barrier is created by the daily SMA50 on approach to $52.70.
On the upside, the local resistance is created by $64.00. The price stopped short of this barrier during the previous week’s recovery attempt. The sell-off from this resistance resulted in a massive long squeeze and pushed the price to the above-mentioned low. Once it is broken, the recovery may be extended towards $68.79, which is the highest level since August 18. The next resistance is created by a psychological $70.00.
