The cryptocurrency has been trading within a range between $67.64 and $62.50 for the past 6 days of trading and will need to break this before we can ascertain where it would like to head toward next.

Market Overview

Taking a look at the daily chart above, we can clearly see the support at $57.64 preventing Litecoin from slipping lower. At the same time, the resistance at $62.50 is preventing Litecoin from traveling higher which puts it in a sideways trading range between these two levels.

Short term prediction: NEUTRAL

The short term price prediction will remain neutral as we trade within the aforementioned range. If Litecoin was to drop beneath $57.60, the market would turn bearish. It would need to break above $62.50 to start the process of turning bullish, however, Litecoin would have to break above $70 to confirm this.

Toward the downside, the first level of support lies at $57.64. This is followed by support at $56.12, $54.25 (.886 Fib Retracement), $51.14 (downside 1.272 Fib Extension), and $48 (long term .786 Fib Retracement).

On the other hand, if the bulls can break $62.50 (bearish .236 Fib Retracement), the first level of resistance above is located at $66.50 (bearish .382 Fib Retracement). This is followed by resistance at $69.71 (bearish .5 Fib Retracement) and $74 (bearish .618 Fib Retracement).

Key Levels

Support:$57.64, $56, $54.25, $51.14, $50, $48, $44.

Resistance:$62.60, $64, $66.50, $69.71, 784, $76.52, $80.
