Litecoin 4-hour chart
According to the above chart, Litecoin’s price broke out of a descending channel and started to surge. Although the price was recovering from the fall noted within a descending channel, the price was prime to witness a fall given that the evident trend was a bearish one. It has been approaching resistance at $85 but has not been able to reach it yet.
The Relative Strength Index had indicated intense selling pressure in the Litecoin market as the value slipped. However, with the rising value, the coin has been moving towards the equilibrium zone, meaning the buying and the selling pressures were moving to become equal. However, given the evident pressure of selling, this journey towards equilibrium has been tough.
Similarly, the MACD indicator was also noting the momentum being low and leaning towards the sellers.
Given the current bearishness in the Litecoin market, the coin has been noting a constant push and pull from the traders. However, the bearish could cause the price from witnessing a fall in the long-term, and traders can make a profit at $76.63. This trend could also witness a reversal, but it may not last for a long time.
