Following the March 12 breakdown, Litecoin slumped to $28 low. Shortly after that, the bulls pulled back to trade above $38. The bulls have earlier bought at the recent low to push Litecoin to the previous highs.
Unfortunately, the upward move was cut short as the bulls were resisted at the $40 resistance. Litecoin is now in a range between $28 and $38. Recently, the bulls attempted and broke the upper price range of $38 but were repelled at $40 resistance. The uptrend was scuttled but LTC is continuing with its fluctuation.
The pair fails to push price over the overhead resistance. This shows that Litecoin lacks buying power at higher levels. LTC would have reached the high above $50 if the bulls have overcome the initial resistance at $40. Nonetheless, if the downtrend resumes and the bears break the support at $28, Litecoin will drop to $23 low.
Presently, Litecoin is over 20% of the daily stochastic. It implies that the market will be in bullish momentum. The price is an uptrend but the momentum is weak bearing in mind the present bear market.
Key Resistance levels: $80, $100, $120
Key Support levels: $50, $40, $20
Litecoin is rising and it is attempting to break the resistance at $40. It appears the market will continue with its consolidation for a few more days. Nonetheless, it will signify negatively, if the bears turn around and break the $28 support.
