The Hourly View for LTC

Last Updated July 1, 2021, 02:047 GMT

At the time of this writing, LTC’s price is down $-2.04 (-1.42%) from the hour prior. It’s been a feast for bulls operating on an hourly timeframe, as LTC has now gone up 8 of the past 10 hours. Regarding the trend, note that the strongest trend exists on the 100 hour timeframe. Most noteworthy in the world of moving averages on the hourly chart is that the 50 hour moving average has been crossed, with price now being below it. 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.

    Can someone interested in #Litecoin give me your honest opinion on why it’s better than $NANO?Why is it as popular as it is? Is there more to it than just being one of the first altcoins?I’m surprised they haven’t jumped ship for Nano, it does what LTC set out to, but better.
