  • Price could break past $60 resistance over next 24 hours
  • Price reached month-long high at $59.67 today

Litecoin price analysis remains bullish, as the token continued along an upward ascent that has propelled LTC price up by more than 26 percent in 6 days. Price rose as high as $59.67 over the past 24 hours to continue testing resistance at $60. LTC has achieved a month-long high at this point since and is back up to the mark that initiated a severe downtrend on June 8, 2022. Over the next 24 hours, major technical indicators suggest that Litecoin price could breach the $60 resistance. However, with added volatility and short sellers looking to make profits out of an ascending market, traders will need to be cautious of over-committing to Litecoin’s cause.

The larger cryptocurrency market followed Litecoin’s trend to make significant increments across the board over the past 24 hours. Bitcoin rose up to the $22,000 mark with an important 5 percent ascent. Ethereum jumped 10 percent, moving as high as $1,500. Meanwhile, leading Altcoins also showed significant uptrends led by Cardano’s 8 percent gain to move up to $0.48. Ripple rose 3 percent to $0.35, while Dogecoin jumped 4 percent to $0.06. Solana rose up to $40.48 with a 5 percent uptrend, while Polkadot moved up to $7.38, moving 6 percent upwards in the process.

The 24-hour relative strength index (RSI) value skyrocketed up to 59.65, just about into the the overbought region. However, trading volume still rose 3 percent. A price correction may be imminent looking at the RSI value, but it could also present an opportunity for bulls to breach the resistance point at $60. Similarly, the moving average convergence divergence (MACD) curve presents a bullish outlook by forming higher highs in a bullishly diverging pattern. LTC support is now set at $54.37 and any movement below this point over the next 24 hours could invalidate the bullish thesis.
