For the past few days Litecoin has been able to set camp around the confluence of the Ichimoku cloud and the 50-day simple moving average. Bears might take control in the short term and inject some selling pressure but technicals are optimistic that the clouds will contain the bears.
Litecoin’s price decline from $413 to $263 represents oversold conditions at 24%. The bulls are therefore optimistic to cross-resistance around $315 and a retest price levels above 2017’s $420 high. Such a price change is going to earn 58% interest for traders and usher in a successful all-time high before the end of May.

Litecoin 4-hour chart
At the time of writing, Litecoin (LTC) began the 4-hour chart at $304 and is now hovering around $306 after attempting to build an ascending trendline on the 4-hour chart at $310. For the near term, this price level could hold with the bulls’ inability to pull the price towards the $315 resistance. A breakout above this resistance could be the necesssary strength to support a massive ascending channel to $339.
Litecoin bears are incessantly trying to suppress the coin’s price to $214. This decline is going to result in losses above 20% for LTC traders. For the time being, the bulls should remain intact and avoid letting go of the lower limits of the cloud, which currently lies around $251.
