This break above the ascending triangle allowed Litecoin’s bullish action to stay intact as the coin sets its sights to above the $50 mark and toward the much desired $62.

The coin has now surged much higher to reach its current trading position of $44.62.

Litecoin Price Prediction – Litecoin’s Short Term Outlook is Bullish

The breakout of the ascending triangle has caused Litecoin to become positively bullish for the short term outlook. The coin will still need to move a bit higher and break another resistance point at $62 to turn bullish through an extended period. However, LTC’s recent push above 50 on the RSI makes an optimistic outlook for the coin. If the Litecoin bulls manage to move higher above the $44.62 mark and break the $45 area, we can expect the initial resistance area to be located at the $47.70 point which is given by a bearish point at the .382 Fib Retracement level. The Fib is measured from February’s high to the lows seen in March. The resistance mentioned above stands at $50, $52 and the 1.414 Fib extension position. It also includes the $54.70, .5 Fib retracement area and the $56 area. This is followed by another resistance at the $61.70 and .618 Fib Retracement level.
