  • There is a major bullish trend line forming with support near $46.50 on the 4-hours chart of the LTC/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).

Litecoin price is rising again from the $45.00 support zone against the US Dollar. LTC is likely to first break higher and it might fuel a fresh increase in bitcoin and ETH.

Litecoin Price Could Retest $50

Earlier this week, litecoin price climbed higher above the $45.00 and $48.00 resistance levels against the US Dollar. However, LTC price failed to clear the $50.00 resistance area.

A high was formed near $49.94 before the price started a sharp downside correction. It broke a few important supports near $48.00, but it remained well bid above the 100 simple moving average (4-hours).

A low is formed near $44.58 and the price is currently rising. Litecoin is trading nicely above the $46.50 level. It surpassed the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $49.94 high to $44.58 low.

There is also a major bullish trend line forming with support near $46.50 on the 4-hours chart of the LTC/USD pair. The pair is now approaching a major resistance near the $48.00 level (the recent breakdown zone). It coincides with the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $49.94 high to $44.58 low.

Litecoin Price

A successful break above the $48.00 resistance could spark a fresh run towards the $50.00 resistance. The next major hurdle for the bulls is near the $52.50 level. In the mentioned case, bitcoin could also gain traction above the $9,740 and $9,800 resistance levels.

Fresh Decrease in LTC

If litecoin fails to continue above the $48.00 resistance, there is a risk of a fresh decline. On the downside, the first major support is near the trend line and $46.50.

The main support is still near the $45.00 level. A daily close below the $45.00 level could initiate a fresh decline towards the $41.50 support.
