Litecoin price declined heavily below $150, but it found support near $115 against the US Dollar. LTC is currently rising, but it is likely to face a strong resistance near $150.

  • Litecoin started a strong decline below the $165 and $150 support levels against the US Dollar.
  • The price is rising from the $115 zone and it is testing the 100 simple moving average (4-hours).
  • Earlier, there was a break below a key ascending channel with support at $165 on the 4-hours chart of the LTC/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).
  • The price must clear the $150 resistance to move back into a positive zone.

Recently, we saw a sharp decline in bitcoin, Ethereum, ripple and litecoin against the US Dollar. LTC price formed a short-term top near the $185 before starting the drop. It broke many important supports near $165 to move into a bearish zone.

It is now approaching the $150 resistance level and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). The 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $186 high to $113 low is also near $150 to act as a resistance.

If there is a clear break above the $150 resistance, the price could start a strong increase. In the stated case, the price is likely to continue higher towards the $165 and $170 levels.

The first major support is forming near the $132 level. Any further losses may perhaps send the price towards the $124 support in the coming sessions.
