Litecoin (LTC) – Why the recovery is just getting started
Like most coins, the January sell-off had a huge impact on Litecoin (LTC). The token managed to trade in and out of the $100 mark but finally bottomed at around $97. LTC has however rallied in the last two weeks or so.
It is now nearly 30% up from that level and this bullish breakout is just getting started. We expect bulls to push the price action well above $140 in the coming days. The key now is to watch if bulls will keep LTC above the next support level of $120.
If this doesn’t happen, then it is likely that the coin will slide back to its strong demand zone of $105. But all signs are pointing towards an upward rally. LTC has for example smashed past its 20-day moving average and is testing the 50-day MA as well.
