Buyers have resumed pushing LTC

Since March 13, Litecoin has been falling consistently after reaching the high of $230. Today, LTC price slumps and finds support above $191 low.

Simultaneously, the bulls buy the dips as the altcoin resumes upward. Buyers have resumed pushing LTC on the upside but the upward move is facing resistance at the $204 high. This was what happened in the previous uptrend. In the previous price action, the altcoin upward move was stuck between the $155 and $200 price level for three days. 

On March 12, the bulls broke the $200 resistance and rallied to $230. On the upside, if the bulls make a repeat of the previous price action, the market will rise to retest the $230 high. Perhaps, if buyers can clear the resistance at $230 and $240, Litecoin will rally to $280 high. Conversely, if the $200 resistance remains unbroken, then the price will be stuck below it for a few more days. The altcoin is trading at $203 at the time of writing.
