LTC/USD: Litecoin Stuck At Resistance
Key Resistance Levels: $47.68, $51, $55
Key Support Levels: $45.5, $43.4, $39.6
While most top cryptocurrency recently created a fresh monthly high, Litecoin, the 7th largest cryptocurrency by market cap, is yet to find a clean crossover. The price is currently trading at key resistance of $47.68 after seeing a 7% surge under 24-hours.
Litecoin might be facing hurdles at this monthly resistance, but the future looks promising for buyers if the price breaks through.
As can be seen on the 4-hours chart, $39.6 LTC is aiming at the upper boundary of the channel following a sharp rebound from the channel’s support of $39.6 on April 20.
Once Litecoin overcomes this current resistance, the price is expected to rally upward. However, Litecoin may pull back to the channel’s support if this resistance continues to pose a threat to the bulls.
Litecoin Price Analysis
A clear cross above the immediate yellow resistance at $47.68 should confirm a strong buying pressure to the next yellow resistance at $51. The resistance above this level is located at $55, around the channel’s upper boundary.
If the price continues to struggle under this holding resistance, Litecoin may look for close support around $45.5 (last week’s high).
If this support fails to provide a rebound level, the price may drop lower to $43.4 – the weekly low. The next support after this can be found at the blue demand area of $39.6, right beneath the channel.
