The Bollinger bands at press time are wide, but they will converge in the immediate future due to the presence of dark red candlesticks. The convergence of the bands suggests a decrease in volatility for the Litecoin price. Meanwhile, as Litecoin price is consolidating below the bands’ mean line, the bands would continue to lean downwards for the next few candlesticks causing the price to decrease.

On the other hand, four indicators issue buy signals suggesting a bullish retracement. Meanwhile, 10 indicators sit on the fence, issuing no support for either side of the market.
