- LTC/USD has returned to the area above $55.00.

Litecoin's technical picture
From the intraday, perspective a strong resistance is now created by a combination of SMA50 (Simple Moving Average) and the upper line of 1-hour Bollinger Band at $56.00. Once it is broken, the sell-off may be extended towards SMA100 1-hour at $57.30 followed by the next psychological barrier of $58.00.
On the downside, we will need to see a sustainable move below Tuesday's low of $54.23 and $54.00 for the sell-off to gain traction. Once it is cleared, a psychological $53.00 will come into view. This barrier is reinforced by the lower boundary of the previous consolidation range. The longer-term support is created by $50.00.
