Litecoin (LTC) fuelled up as Whale Continue to accumulate the coin
Litecoin is one of the oldest coins in the digital marketplace. The Digi coin has lost more than 50% in the last two months. However, recently the price breach an important support zone of $136 and $139. This signifies the underlying bullish current in LTC.
The bearish slopping line is on the verge of a breakout above $146. As reading on the daily chart, LTC has briefly broken the long-term support zone near$136, the digital currency hit the low made in July. The price stayed in the lower zone for two weeks since January 6. However, the price breached the $140 mark on January 12. LTC buyers are now, consolidating in the upside range and waiting to breach the downside trendline from the highs of $295.40.
Still, buyers are struggling below the important 50/100/200 SMA crossover. The MACD (Moving Average Convergence Divergence) still trades below the midline, which makes the bears hopeful.
The volume has been increased with more than a 30% increase in the past 24-hour trading. Thus the upside is being supported by the rising trading volume. The argument is further supported by the Relative Strength Index (RSI), which trades at 48 with a bullish crossover.
A decisive close above today’s high would initiate a fresh round of buying opportunities in the digital coin. The first upside resistance is placed at the highs of December 24 at $166.79. It would further mark the closing above the 100-SMA.
Alternatively, a failure to sustain above the $140 level could motivate market participants to open new short positions in the pair.
