The Litecoin price (LTC) is trading in the uptrend zone while facing rejection at the $130 resistance level.

Long-term forecast for the Litecoin price: Bullish

Since March 31, the uptrend has been broken at the $130 resistance level. The LTC price fell above the $120 support or moving averages and continued its sideways movement. This means that Litecoin will tend to rise above the moving averages to retest the resistance at $130 and $140. 

In the last five days, buyers have not yet managed to break through these resistances. The LTC price will rally above the $140 high if the current resistance levels are broken. Moreover, the cryptocurrency will suffer a setback at the recent high as the market reaches the overbought zone. On the downside, the bears will try to break the support at $120 if the bulls fail to break the recent high. LTC price will fall to $101 if the altcoin loses the $120 support. Today, LTC/USD is trading at $126 at the time of writing.
