The Hourly View for LTC

Last Updated March 2, 2021, 02:048 GMT

At the moment, LTC’s price is up $0.13 (0.07%) from the hour prior. This move is a reversal from the hour prior, which saw price move down. Regarding the trend, note that the strongest trend exists on the 50 hour timeframe. Price action traders may also wish to note that we see a pin bar candlestick pattern on LTC. Given that we see an uptrend on the 20 and 10 hourly candle timeframe, and that such candlestick patterns often denote reversals, this may be worth noting. The moving averages on the hourly timeframe suggest a choppiness in price, as the 20, 50, 100 and 200 are all in a mixed alignment — meaning the trend across timeframes is inconsistent, indicating a potential opportunity for rangebound traders.

  • From ultimateviet:

    I admit I have been wrong 100 times on LTC/BTC but the good thing is I kept accumulating more. Sure I’ve missed out on many pumps but I’ll eventually catch the bottom and I’ll be locked and loaded. All it takes is for me to be right once and I’m set for life. 🚀

  • From HoloRogue:

    I randomly look at “watchlisted” on coinmarketcap for coins i am researching. #Holochain has gone from 40k to 51k in less than 2 weeks. Why is this relevant? Well Litecoin has 289k market rank 8, Polkadot 240k rank 6 people are starting to take notice, fast.
