Across the technical indicators, the MACD shows strong bullish momentum as observed in the increasing size of the dark green histogram.

The RSI is currently trading in the neutral zone a little below the 44.00 mark and does not issue a signal. The indicator has been trading in the neutral zone for the past 22 days. At press time the RSI has again had a small spike towards the overbought region suggesting an increasing bullish presence at the current price level and suggesting that the buyers are fighting back.

The Bollinger bands at press time are narrow however as the last few candlesticks are green the bands will expand in the immediate future. As the bulls take charge of the market momentum, it will cause the volatility of the Litecoin price to increase in the short term. Moreover, as the price is consolidating below the band mean line rather than above it, the bands will be leaning downwards for the next few candlesticks.

On the other hand, only two indicators issue buy signals suggesting bullish momentum. Meanwhile, ten indicators sit on the fence issuing no support for either side of the market.
