Litecoin has retreated above the moving average lines

Litecoin (LTC) price has been in an uptrend since July 28. The uptrend could not be maintained above the $65 resistance zone, hence the rejection.

The uptrend could have reached the highs of $80 and $104 if the resistance at $65 was overcome. Today, Litecoin has retreated above the moving average lines, but the bears are trying to break below them. The cryptocurrency will regain its upside momentum if it holds above the current support. The LTC price is moving above the 21-day line SMA, while reaching the low of $57. If the bears break below the moving average lines, the selling pressure will intensify to the downside. The altcoin will retrace and regain its previous lows of $41 and $47.
