Litecoin 1-hour chart
The above hourly chart of Litecoin noted that its value had dipped under the support at $62.26, however, this was just a brief diversion. The price immediately bounced higher and surpassed the resistance at $64.61 and reached $74 without much hesitation. This price rise happened in a way to give rise to an ascending channel.
The formation of an ascending channel marked a trend reversal. The current bullish market has been painting signs of reversal and a chance to open short positions.
To start with the 50 moving average although was under the candlesticks, the gap was vast. This hinted at a possible correction that would bring the price of the digital asset back to normal.
Another indication was the Relative Strength Index. The RSI has remained in the overbought zone for more than a day. Even though it has dropped from the overbought zone every now and then, the position so close to the zone indicated that the asset has been overbought and a selling pressure may be upcoming. Currently, under the overbought zone, yet headed towards it, could mean a temporary buying pressure that could push LTC’s price a little higher, but will flip soon.
The value of LTC may hit $74.50, which could be a good entry point and a fall may result in the value to reach at least $70.02. the bullishness in the market may remain despite this correction.
