The price of Litecoin (LTC) is in a downward correction as the price breaks above the 21-day line SMA.
Last week, the cryptocurrency was trading above the 21-day line SMA, but below the 50-day line SMA. On June 26, Litecoin reached the high of $60, but fell back above the 21-day line SMA. Should the bulls overcome the 50-day line SMA, the cryptocurrency price could rise to $85. However, if the bulls fail to break the 50-day SMA line, the current fluctuation will continue. If the bears break below the 21-day line SMA, Litecoin will fall back to the previous low.
Litecoin has fallen to the 48 level of the Relative Strength Index for the 14 period. The cryptocurrency is in the downtrend zone, but the recent upward movement has brought the altcoin close to the uptrend zone. The price of the cryptocurrency is between the moving average lines, which indicates a possible movement within the range. Litecoin is above the 80% area of the daily stochastic. This indicates that the market is in a bearish momentum. Also, it is likely that the coin will fall back to the previous high. The 21-day line SMA and the 50-day line SMA are sloping downward, indicating a downtrend.
Resistance levels: $140, $180, $220
Support levels: $100, $60, $20
