The four-hour time frame is showing a large ascending triangle pattern, with price currently testing trendline resistance from the pattern. Traders should note that ascending triangle patterns are typically bullish patterns and sometimes signal a reversal at the end of a bearish downtrend.

The mentioned time frame is also showing that the October 15th swing-high, around the $66.00 level, currently offers the strongest form of technical resistance above.

Relative Strength Index

The Relative Strength Index is slightly bullish on the four-hour time frame and is showing that bullish momentum is building.


MACD Indicator

The MACD histogram is attempting to recover on the mentioned time frame, with the signal line and the MACD histogram trying to move higher.

Litecoin / USD Medium-term price analysis


Litecoin remains bullish over the medium-term, with the cryptocurrency growing increasingly confident above its trend defining 200-day moving average.

The daily time frame shows that the LTC / USD pair has been steadily rising, following its bullish breakout from a descending price channel last month. The mentioned time frame also shows that the $69.00 level currently offers the strongest form of near-term resistance above the pair’s current 2019 trading high.

If the LTC / USD pair does advance towards the $69.00 level, traders should note that a larger inverted head and shoulders pattern will then form on the daily time frame.
