LTC price rose above the $63 support

Litecoin (LTC) price has continued its downward movement and has fallen to a low of $54. As usual, the bulls bought the dips to resume the upward correction.

The LTC price rose above the $63 support as the market resumed the consolidation above it. On May 13, the LTC price rose back above the $63 support and reached a high of $73. 

The bulls failed to break resistance at the recent high, so a pullback occurred. If the bulls break the resistance at $73, Litecoin will go up to $100. The upside momentum will continue if the price breaks above the moving averages. On the downside, the May 12 candle has a sweeping tail. The long tail indicates that there is strong buying pressure at the current support. Therefore, the current range of fluctuation will continue for a few more days.
