Litecoin Price Analysis

According to ethereumworldnews; a swing low was formed at $80.88 and later the price climbed above the $84.00 and $88.00 levels. It even spiked above the $95.00 level and traded as high as $97.63. Recently, it corrected lower below the $94.00 level and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last upside from the $80.88 low to $97.63 high.

However, the $90.00 support and the 50% Fib retracement level of the last upside from the $80.88 low to $97.63 high is acting as a strong support.

More importantly, there is a major breakout pattern forming with resistance near the $95.00 level on the 4-hour chart. If there is a clear break above the $95.00 resistance, the price is likely to retest the $100.00 resistance. The next main resistance for buyers is near the $105.00 and $108.00 levels.
