The current support suggests a further upward movement

For the past 24 hours, Litecoin has been retracing after making positive moves into the $173 resistance zone.

The crypto has retraced and found support above the SMAs and it is trading at $154 at the time of writing. The current support suggests a further upward movement of the coin. Nonetheless, the recent rally to the $173 high was a breakout at the $140 price level. 

The altcoin was earlier confined between $120 and $140 for over a week before the recent breakout. Presently, the crypto is consolidating above the $150 support for a possible upward move. On the upside, if buyers push the coin above the $170 resistance, the coin will rally above the $200 high. However, the current fluctuation will continue if the current resistance level remains unbroken.
