  • LTC/USD has retreated from the intraday during European hours.
  • The initial support is located on the approach to SMA50 1-hour.

Litecoin (LTC), the sixth-largest digital asset with the current market capitalization of $3.0 billion, has retreated from Wednesday's high of $48.80 to trade marginally above $47.00 handle. The coin had gained 4.5% on a day-to-day basis and lost 1.2% since the beginning of Thursday. While the coin managed to recover from the intraday low of $47.00, the upside momentum has yet to gain traction.

Litecoin's technical picture

From the intraday perspective, the nearest support awaits LTC on approach to $47.00. It is created by the intraday low and SMA50 (Simple Moving Average) 1-hour. If the bears manage to push the price below this level, the downside momentum may gain traction; however, we will still need to clear $46.36 (iSMA100 1-hour) and $44. 70 (Wednesday's low) on the way down. The next barrier comes at $42.35  ( November 25 low) and $41.70 (the lower line of 1-day Bollinger Band)

On the upside, a sustainable move above $48.50 is needed to improve the short-term technical picture. This resistance is created by a confluence of  SMA200 1-hour and the upper line of 1-hour Bollinger Band. This movement will take the price outside the resent range and bring the psychological $50.00 into focus.
