Litecoin (LTC) Price Analysis

There was a decent price action in the value of Litecoin (LTC) over the swing low of $53. The digital currency remained over the support levels at $53 and $54, which is indeed a positive sign. From the chart, the value of the coin tried to clear the $54 mark on several occasions, but buyers were able to defend more losses.

This led to a major upside movement, and the value of the coin surged over the $55 and $56 marks. There was also a break over the 23.6 percent Fibonacci retracement level of the previous swing from the high of $62 to the low of $53. Nevertheless, the present upward movement is capped close to the $58 mark.

There is also a formation of a key bearish trendline with resistance at the $58 mark on the 1-hour chart of the coin. The trendline is in line with the 50 percent Fibonacci retracement level of the previous swing from the high of $62 to the low of $53.

Hence, once the coin surges over the $58 resistance level, it could see more gains in the short-term and test its previous swing high close to the $62 mark.
