The Hourly View for LTC

Last Updated July 29, 2021, 02:047 GMT

Currently, LTC’s price is up $1.01 (0.73%) 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 100 hour timeframe. Regarding moving averages, it should first be noted that price has crossed the 20 hour moving average, resulting in them with price now being above it. The moving averages on the hourly timeframe suggest a bearishness in price, as the 20, 50, 100 and 200 are all in a bearish alignment — meaning the shorter duration moving averages are below the longer duration averages, implying a stable downward trend.

Litecoin Technical Analysis

Moving average crossovers are always interesting, so let’s start there: Litecoin crossed above its 50 day moving average yesterday. Trend traders will want to observe that the strongest trend appears on the 90 day horizon; over that time period, price has been moving down. Traders will also want to note, though, that a counter trend — meaning a trend going up — can be seen on the 14 day timeframe. This may setup an interesting opportunity for traders looking to sell rallies in anticipation of the primary trend resuming. Or to view things another way, note that out of the past 14 days Litecoin’s price has gone up 8 them.
