Litecoin PRICE DAILY CHART (March 12 – May 19, 2020) Zoomed In

Litecoin daily price chart 19-05-20 zoomed in

Based on the daily chart analysis, on April 6 Litecoin started a bullish momentum creating higher highs with higher lows. However, in late April the price reversed from the high end of the current trading zone $35.92- $50.20 reflecting a weaker bullish sentiment. On Saturday, the market corrected its uptrend and carved out a lower high at $48.8.

A close below the low end of the aforementioned zone may encourage bears to press LTC/USD towards $23.30.That said, the weekly support levels underscored on the chart (zoomed in) should be considered.

Any close in the other direction i.e. above the high end of the zone could resume bullish price action towards $62.20. A further close above that level may extend the rally towards $74.55. Nonetheless, the weekly resistance levels printed on the chart should be kept in focus.

Litecoin four hour price chart 19-05-20

Looking at the four-hour chart, on April 23 the price broke above the downtrend line originated from the April 7 high at $47.7. As a result, the market rallied on April 30 to an over seven-week high at $50.9.

At present, the market eyes a test of the downtrend line originated of the May 3 high at $49.6. Any violation of this line would be considered as a bullish signal. A break above $47.28 would be considered an additional bullish signal and may trigger a rally towards the high end of the current trading zone discussed above on the daily chart. Although, the daily resistance level marked on the chart should be watched closely.

On the other hand, any break below could send LTC/USD towards the $38.00 handle. Nevertheless, the weekly support level underlined on the chart should be monitored.
