Since January 19, six more whales have joined the Litecoin network holding between 100,000 and 1,000,000 coins ($12,800,000 and $128,800,000) which shows they believe LTC price is bound to rise higher.

Despite Litecoin price going down for the past several days, the number of daily active addresses has continued to rise. Similarly, its social volume also had significant spikes in the past week, adding more credence to the bullish outlook.

However, the In/Out of the Money Around Price (IOMAP) chart shows steep resistance ahead of $128 until around $143. The most significant support area is located between $112 and $116, with 756,000 LTC in volume.

This support area between $112 and $116 coincides with the lower support trendline of the 12-hour chart descending triangle pattern.

A breakdown below $112 would be a significant bearish indicator with a price target of $80, a 34% move calculated using the height of the pattern as a reference point.
