For the LTC/USD candlestick chart on tradingview, the MACD line is about to soar over the signal line. This may refer to the return of pressure due to buyers. Slight bullish divergence was noted after LTC sunk and reached oversold territory from 14th to 17th of August. Data obtained from pool BTC.com points to the gradual drop in terms of mining difficulty [it was almost at 16 million prior to halving, and on August 22nd it had dipped to 11.40 million].
Now, miners on the LTC chain are awarded 12.5 LTC [which was previously 25 LTC] for successfully mining a block on the network.
