Litecoin attempts to break the $200 resistance

Today, buyers have retested the resistance zone twice and found penetration difficult. This bullish scenario has been ongoing after the February 23 breakdown.

On February 25, the price corrected upward but was repelled at the $205 resistance. The bearish reaction compelled Litecoin to decline to $162 low. 

The uptrend repeated itself twice in March but buyers are yet to have the upper hand over sellers. The LTC price is trading at $199.68 at the time of writing. On the upside, if buyers continue to push price and the resistance is breached, LTC will retest its previous high at a level of $240. However, the bullish scenario will be invalidated if Litecoin is repelled from the $200 resistance zone. The price will then be fluctuating between $155 and $205.
