LTC/USD 4-hour chart – LTC supported by $170

On the 4-hour chart, we can see the market failing to breach $170, meaning that further upside will be seen over the next few days.

The overall market has started to reverse from the several-week retracement that resulted in a loss of over 70 percent. Over the past few days, the market established both a higher low and lower high, indicating that the market trades in an increasingly tighter range.

Therefore, until Litecoin sets either a higher high or lower low, we expect the market to continue moving sideways over the following days. The resistance to break is located at the $200 mark, while support at $170 mark.

Considering that the overall price action momentum can no longer push any lower and is exhausted, we expect LTC/USD to push higher and breach the $200 mark. From there, the next target is located at the $220 mark and once reached, would confirm that the market has become increasingly more bullish

Litecoin Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Litecoin price analysis is bullish as the market has established a strong base from which to move higher over the next week. However, first the $200 resistance needs to be broken to set a higher high. Once that is done, Litecoin price should see further gains later this month towards the previous all-time high at $413.
