Litecoin (LTC) Chart Has a Positive Hue
After slipping from a recent high of $254 on February 20 to a low print of $158 on March 9, Litecoin (LTC) has turned around on the chart and trades back above Fibonacci retracement at $172. The token is also touching the current downtrend line and a break and close above this should leave the 50% Fibonacci retracement level at $210 as the first target. The stochastic indicator has turned around from being extremely oversold, while the IG Client Sentiment Indicator shows that while LTC traders are still net-long, recent positioning changes highlight a mixed trading bias. Support should set in at the previously mentioned $172 ahead of a double-low at $158.
