Litecoin (LTC) Price Outlook, Chart and Analysis:

  • Descending triangle formation broken to the downside before rebound.
  • Cluster of technical indicators could produce another sharp move.

Litecoin (LTC) Charts Shows Bulls and Bears Breaking Even

The recent sharp rally and muted sell-off on the daily Litecoin (LTC) chart is likely to provoke renewed volatility as technical indicators are set to collide. While the longer-term trend remains positive, with a series of higher lows in place form the start of the year, the recent descending triangle formation did not prompt a bullish reversal at the first attempt. The support line of the triangle was broken, and closed below, but the recent sharp pull-back now puts the current price at the junction of the down slope and support. The price is now sitting on the 50-day moving average and is just below the 20-day ma and this confluence of indicators could prompt a sharp move, one way or the other, in the near-term.

The CCI indicator has moved out of oversold territory – the last time this happened was in late 2018 – and suggests that sellers are running out of steam in the near-term. A break below the recent $64.7 low would see the last higher low around $60 as a potential target while a break and close back above the down slope may see bulls test $84 ahead of the recent $100 high.
