Litecoin News Today – How LTC/USD Looks on the 1-hour chart

Looking at the daily chart, we can see the LTC/USD pair has found support at the 100-day SMA near the $43 support. Since June 11 this has limited the sell-off. The next support comes at $41.50 and $40. $41.50 is reinforced by $39.50. The 50-day SMA and the middle pattern of the Bollinger Band add more strength to the $44.65 resistance area. A sustainable move above the above-mentioned resistance area will pave the way for a move to $50 with the 200-day SMA located on approach which stopped the recovery earlier in the month. This area may be difficult to defeat.
