LTC/USD: Daily chart

LTC/USD has formed a potential Doji candlestick on the daily timeframe after Friday’s bounce, suggesting that the price in search of a clear direction for its next move.

The price wavers between the 21-day moving average (DMA) and 50-DMA, with the 14-day Relative Strength Index trading flat at the midline. The technical picture, therefore, points to indecision.

Only a convincing break above the 21-DMA barrier at $152 could revive the recovery momentum from eleven-day lows.

Meanwhile, the sellers need acceptance below the 50-DMA at $124 to resume this week’s downward spiral from near $166 levels.

Should the selling pressure intensify, a breach of the $100 level becomes inevitable. The next significant support is aligned at the upward-sloping 100-DMA at $94.87.
