Litecoin Price Analysis

After a steady rise, bitcoin, Ethereum, ripple, and litecoin corrected lower against the US Dollar. Earlier, LTC price gained bullish momentum above the $60.00 resistance level and the 55 simple moving average (4-hours).

However, the price struggled to clear the $65.00 resistance zone. A high was formed near $64.91 and the price started a downside correction. There was a break below the $62.00 support, plus the price traded below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $51.66 low to $64.91 high.

The price is now testing the $58.00 support and the 55 simple moving average (4-hours). It is also holding the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $51.66 low to $64.91 high.

More importantly, it seems like there is a key contracting triangle forming with resistance near $60.00 on the 4-hours chart of the LTC/USD pair. If there is a clear break above the triangle resistance at $60.00, the price could resume its upward move.

The next major resistance is near the $62.00 level, above which the bulls are likely to aim a break above the key $65.00 resistance zone.

Conversely, the price break the 55 simple moving average (4-hours) and the triangle support at $57.00. The first major support is near the $55.00 level. Any further losses could lead the price towards the main $51.50 support.
