Overall, the market has had rough times over the past month. After setting a new all-time-high around $245 at the end of February, Litecoin reversed and retraced by almost 40 percent to the low of $155.
From there on, Litecoin bounced to the upside and regained much of the loss as it found resistance around $195. After a brief rejection, Litecoin found support at the $170 mark. From there on, the current bullish momentum for Litecoin started.
Earlier this week, the Litecoin price then tested the $195 mark, and some resistance was found. However, after a couple of hours and a small pullback towards the $180 mark, Litecoin did manage to break the resistance and consolidated around the $200 mark for some time.
On Friday, Litecoin started to push higher again and quickly reached the $220 mark, which previously acted as both very strong support and resistance last month, when Litecoin set the $245 all-time-high. The market momentum quickly broke above the $220 resistance and allowed Litecoin to reach the next resistance around $230. If LTC/USD can continue its current bullish momentum and break above the $230 mark, we are likely to see the all-time high of $245 tested tomorrow.
Alternatively, if the $230 resistance rejects Litecoin, we might see a strong retracement – likely towards the previous consolidation area around $200-$210. Litecoin will likely form a base and a higher low from there on, from which to push towards breaking the all-time high. This would be a healthy correction for the market as there has not been a decent retracement for several days now.
Litecoin Price Prediction: Conclusion
Litecoin price prediction is bullish as there are no signs for the current momentum to slow down. If $230 current resistance is reached, we expect Litecoin price to push towards the all-time high of $245 next week and potentially set a new all-time high, indicating that we might see this month close with substantial gains.
Suppose the current resistance around the $230 mark actually offers resistance and rejects further bullish momentum, we are then likely to see Litecoin retrace for a couple of days and set a new higher low in preparation for further upside next week.
