Litecoin price analysis: LTC spikes above $120, strong bullish signal set?

Litecoin Price analysis

TL;DR Breakdown

  • Litecoin price analysis is bearish today.
  • Major resistance at $120 tested overnight.
  • LTC/USD spiked to $124 over the last hours.

Litecoin price analysis is bearish today as we expect a slight retracement to follow next after a strong spike above $120 resistance. Likely previous resistance around $116 will be retested as support, and another higher low will be set there.

Litecoin price action has set a series of higher local lows and highs for almost two weeks now. After some consolidation early last week, further higher highs were set until the previous major swing high at $116 was broken on the 19th of March. 

Consolidation below the resistance followed over the weekend as another base from which to continue higher was established until overnight to Today. Shortly after midnight, LTC/USD spiked to $120 next resistance, with further tests for upside reaching as high as $124 over the last hours.

However, considering the sharp advance the Litecoin price has seen over the last 24 hours, we assume bulls are exhausted as of now. Slight retracement should be seen next to set up the next move higher later in the week as the overall momentum is still very bullish.

Litecoin price analysis: Conclusion 

Litecoin price analysis is bearish today as the market has spiked around 7 percent higher to the $124 since the last resistance. Therefore, a minor correction should be a healthy sign before more upside is tested later in the week.
